Transcranial Doppler ultrasound in neurocritical care

Transcranial Doppler ultrasound in neurocritical care Multimodality monitoring is a common practice in caring for neurocritically ill patients, and consists mainly in clinical assessment, intracranial pressure monitoring and using several imaging methods. Of these imaging methods, transcranial Doppler (TCD) is an interesting tool that provides a non-invasive, portable and radiation-free way to assess cerebral circulation and diagnose and follow-up (duplex method) intracranial mass-occupying lesions, such as hematomas and midline shift.

Abstract

Multimodality monitoring is a common practice in caring for neurocritically ill patients, and consists mainly in clinical assessment, intracranial pressure monitoring and using several imaging methods. Of these imaging methods, transcranial Doppler (TCD) is an interesting tool that provides a non-invasive, portable and radiation-free way to assess cerebral circulation and diagnose and follow-up (duplex method) intracranial mass-occupying lesions, such as hematomas and midline shift. This article reviews the basics of TCD applied to neurocritical care patients, offering a rationale for its use as well as tips for practitioners.
