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 function testing, and assessment of atherosclerotic occlusion and stenosis in the carotid and vertebrobasilar systems. Ultrasound findings in cervical artery dissection, dural fistula, gomus tumor, and vasculitis 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, carotid endarterectomy and carotid artery stenting, and other conditions and procedures. Future developments are covered in the final chapter.
