Neurosonology is a first-line modality in the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular disease and especially of stroke. In this new edition of Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke, this noninvasive, real-time imaging method has been given expanded coverage, particularly for its clinical utility.
As in the first edition, the new edition offers both a clear overview of the principles of neurosonology and a casebook exploring critical cerebrovascular problems. Ultrasound anatomy, technical aspects of clinical application, and the advantages and limitations of ultrasound are reviewed and contrasted to conventional, magnetic resonance, and computed tomography angiography. Forty-five selected cases from the authors' extensive collections at Charite - Universitatsmedizin Berlin and the Center of Neurology in Bad Segeberg, Germany, are then discussed. The patient histories and working diagnoses are followed by detailed assessments of the extra- and intracranial color-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 Thieme MediaCenter, providing further in-depth understanding of the full potential of the method.
Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke, Second Edition, offers neurologists, neuroradiologists, and all physicians treating patients with cerebrovascular disease an authoritative introduction and guide to this powerful diagnostic tool.

Praise for this book:
An excellent textbook accompanied by high quality illustrations illustrating clinical applications, [and the] advantages and limitations of ultrasound examinations of the central nervous system. -RAD Magazine
Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Strokeis a comprehensive reference for the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular disease using neurosonology. Divided into two main parts, the book opens with an in-depth overview of the fundamental principles of neurosonology. It describes ultrasound anatomy, examination techniques, the essential technical concepts for clinical applications, as well as the pathogenesis of stroke and vascular pathology. For each case, the book provides concise descriptions of clinical presentation, initial neuroradiological findings, suspected diagnosis, the angiological questions, and final diagnosis. Each case concludes with a detailed discussion, enabling the clinician to gain a solid understanding of the diagnosed disease and the angiologic questions arising from the case.
A reference and casebook in a single volume, Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke is ideal for clinicians seeking to optimize care for patients by enhancing their knowledge of this important diagnostic tool.About the Author:
