This comprehensive course offers an in-depth exploration of Transcranial Doppler (TCD) Ultrasonography, a non-invasive, ultrasound-based technology essential for evaluating cerebral circulation. TCD is pivotal in assessing the flow dynamics in major brain arteries, aiding in the diagnosis and management of various cerebrovascular conditions. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of TCD’s principles, including the Doppler Effect, windows of insonation, cerebral hemodynamics, and the interpretative aspects of the spectral waveform.
