Overview

Imagine sampling tissues and flow behavior in real time at a rate of 5 thousand a second

This is the power of ultrasound for stroke diagnosis and management. It’s also non-invasive, portable, and versatile. Yet it is a woefully underused modality in stroke medicine.

The second edition of Cerebrovascular Ultrasound in Stroke Prevention and Treatment allows all involved in treating stroke patients to learn how ultrasound can enrich their ability to diagnose, evaluate, and treat stroke. It helps sonographers and physicians understand what information can be gained from ultrasound imaging generally, as well as what is needed for a specific case. The authors present a full overview of the "how"s and "why"s, including:

  • The principles of intra- and extra-cranial ultrasound
  • Hemodynamic principles
  • The criteria of interpretation
  • Ultrasound in neurocritical care
  • Ultrasound in acute stroke

A final chapter on Neurosonology Pearls provides diagnostic waveforms, images, and practical wisdom on best-practice use of ultrasound for monitoring cerebrovascular disease.

Cerebrovascular Ultrasound in Stroke Prevention and Treatment provides neurologists, radiologists, vascular medicine specialists, and sonographers with the basics for developing the skills needed for truly modern stroke diagnosis and care.
