Transcranial Doppler, Embolic Screening/VasoReactivity Study
Transcranial Doppler with Embolic Screening/Vasoreactivity Study
Similar to carotid doppler examination, this non-invasive diagnostic procedure examines the arteries of the head for increased stroke risk. The registered vascular technologist will apply a gel to a flat probe placing it on several areas of the head including the eyelids, temples, and back of the neck. It is often performed at the same time as the carotid doppler and both procedures typically take 45 minutes combined.
