Transcranial Doppler

Transcranial Doppler uses a handheld-pulsed low frequency Doppler transducer that enables recording of blood flow velocities from intracranial arteries through selected cranial foramina and thin regions of the skull. Analysis of the Doppler spectra allows display and calculation of peak systolic, peak diastolic, and mean velocities and pulsatility indices.

Absolutely safe. Contrast agents are not used, thereby avoiding allergic reactions and decreasing risk to the patient.
