About the Authors
  • Ultrasound provides a unique diagnostic perspective in cerebrovascular disorders, with extremely high temporal resolution and excellent spatial display of extracranial arteries, brain structures and cerebral vessels. This comprehensive text covers the fundamentals of ultrasound physics, new technology, and clinical applications in all ages. It provides a firm grounding in hemodynamics and describes computational models for study of the cerebral circulation. Extracranial applications in assessing the carotid and vertebral arteries are discussed in detail, as are intracranial Doppler applications in stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, arteriovenous malformations, interventional and surgical procedures, and the detection and monitoring of cerebral microembolism. These and other topics, both clinical and technical, are presented by leading authorities in the field, with extensive illustrations, and tables are included for the standardized classification of cerebrovascular diseases based on international consensus conferences. For clinicians and clinical neuroscientists this is the definitive reference text in cerebrovascular ultrasound.

    • The most authoritative book on this fast moving diagnostic technology
    • Covers intracranial and extracranial applications, including new technologies such as functional neurosonology and 3D and 4D ultrasonography
    • Covers physics, technical aspects and clinical applications

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The information covered in this text represents truly important advances in the understanding and clinical application of ultrasound techniques … I fully recommend this instructive and comprehensive to all physicians caring for these patients.' The Lancet

    'This is a readable and attractively presented book that, despite the rapid progress of cerebrovascular ultrasound, has been published with many current references … It is to be highly recommended.' C. L. Turner, British Journal of Neurosurgery

    'The first part, on ultrasound physics, technology and haemodynamics, I found superb … the second part on clinical cerebrovascular ultrasound has an excellent section of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, intima-media thickness, plaque characterization and natural history … We work in an increasingly multidisciplinary world where contributions from many different specialists are required to manage patients and are certainly required to achieve useful progress in research. It is refreshing to see this approach mirrored in the writing of this extremely helpful text.' Joanna M. Wardlaw, Brain

    'This is a very welcome addition to the cerebrovascular library and is to be recommended. It is a well-marshalled, systematic, well-illustrated and readable text, accessible to a wide variety of clinicians, radiologists and scientists dealing with cerebrovascular disease.' ACNR
