Neurovascular ultrasound is an important diagnostic tool for assessing cerebrovascular disease and has a number of therapeutic applications as well. In this volume of the Frontiers of Neurology and Neuroscience series, Baumgartner (neurology, U. Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland) presents 23 papers reviewing the current knowledge and future research trends of diagnostic and therapeutic neurovascular ultrasound. The first contribution reviews the physical and technical principles of the technique. This is followed by description of arterial wall imaging, endothelial endothelial /en·do·the·li·al/ (-the´le-al) pertaining to or made up of endothelium.

Vasculitis refers to a varied group of disorders which all share a common underlying problem of inflammation of a blood vessel or blood vessels. The inflammation may affect any size blood vessel, anywhere in the body. are then presented. Diagnostic and therapeutic transcranial ultrasound and clinical applications of transcranial Doppler modeling are described with reference to acute stroke, cerebral aneurysms, patent foramen ovale patent foramen ovale PFO Cardiology An opening between the left and right atria which allows blood to bypass the lungs in utero; the FO normally closes shortly after birth, but remains open in up to 20%; a PFO is, in absence of other cardiac defects, is of no consequence , carotid endarterectomy and carotid artery stenting, and other conditions and procedures. Future developments are covered in the final chapter.
