Neurosonology is a first-line modality in the diagnosis andmanagement of cerebrovascular disease and especially of stroke. In this newedition of Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke, this noninvasive, realtimeimaging method has been given expanded coverage, particularly for its clinicalutility.
As in the first edition, the new edition offers both a clearoverview of the principles of neurosonology and a casebook exploring criticalcerebrovascular problems. Ultrasound anatomy, technical aspects of clinicalapplication, and the advantages and limitations of ultrasound are reviewed andcontrasted to conventional, magnetic resonance, and computed tomographyangiography. Forty-five selected cases from the authors' extensive collectionsat Charite - Universitatsmedizin Berlin and the Center of Neurology in BadSegeberg, Germany, are then discussed. The patient histories and workingdiagnoses are followed by detailed assessments of the extra- and intracranialcolor-coded duplex sonographic findings and additional diagnostic procedures.The relevant clinical aspects are presented in a compact, comprehensible way,and for the majority of the cases videos are available in the ThiemeMediaCenter, providing further in-depth understanding of the full potential ofthe method.
