Current Ultrasound Techniques
The staff at the Neurocritical Care Center have specialized training for treating you or your loved one during a life-threatening neurologic incident. It is critical to monitor your condition on an ongoing basis to identify what is causing your problem, and to determine treatment options for your condition.
One important tool at the center is ultrasound, and our staff is trained in the most current ultrasound techniques with access to advanced ultrasound imaging devices. You will most likely have ultrasound tests that will help evaluate your risk factors and monitor ongoing issues. For example, transcranial Doppler helps us look at blood flow in your brain, and we also use contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging to see how blood is moving throughout your brain and identify areas where blood flow is restricted.
