Abstract

Modern diagnostic ultrasound of the brain arteries is faced with other non-invasive imaging techniques (like CT-angiography and MR-angiography) as competitors. Each technique has its specific advantages and disadvantages, the advantages of cerebrovascular ultrasound being particularly its non-invasiveness, its low costs, its high diagnostic precision in certain areas, itsexcellent time resolution and its ability to simultaneously image the trueblood flow in conjunction with the morphology of the vessel wall. These and other highlights of cerebrovascular ultrasound should more clearly be stressed in the literature. In practice, cerebrovascular ultra-sound is increasingly based on international consensus efforts and improved training curriculums, and its clinical evaluation is also improving. The latter is particularly true for the measurement of microemboli, another new methodological approach exclusively reserved to ultrasound. Neurologists should become aware of the fact that cerebrovascular ultrasound is a neurology-specific diagnostic instrument which provides, at least in part, independency from radiology-dominated diagnostics. This is particularly true, if cerebrovascular ultrasound is combined with echocontrast agents "Perfusion Imaging" of the brain could become a breakthrough in the field of cerebrovascular ultrasound, which, although its still technically difficult to perform. In neuropsychology, functional transcranial Doppler sonography (fTCD) is becoming an accepted, new approach which appears to be an interesting technique compensatory or even alternative to functional MRI.
