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, realtime 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.
Complete extra- and intracranial arterial and venous ultrasound examination
New techniques: ultrasound fusion imaging, ultrafast ultrasound, contrast application
More than 1,300 high-quality illustrations, including full-color duplex images
Fifteen newly selected cases on conditions such as subarachnoid hemorrhage and dural fistula, as well as rare stroke causes including sickle cell disease and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome
Revision of many cases from the first edition
More than 60 new video clips (for a total of 130) available at the Thieme MediaCenter, bringing ultrasound anatomy and challenging cases to your monitor!
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.

Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke is 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.
Practical discussion of 30 clinical scenarios thoroughly prepares the clinician for the range of frequently encountered problems
Consistent presentation aids rapid reference to cases of interest
More than 750 high-quality illustrations, including full-color Doppler images
Nearly 100 video clips on the accompanying DVD demonstrate anatomy, imaging concepts, and select cases included in the book
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.
