Manual of Neurosonology

In the book, ultrasound is considered as a priority technique for visualizing disorders of cerebral circulation and other pathological conditions of the central nervous system.

The first part (A) presents the basic principles of ultrasound diagnostics, as well as basic information about cerebrovascular diseases. The anatomy, pathology and pathophysiology of the arteries of the head and neck are described and illustrated in detail. In addition, other methods of vascular imaging (in particular, CT and MRI with contrast) are also covered in detail.

The second part (C) discusses the advantages and disadvantages of ultrasound in comparison with other methods of diagnosing vascular pathology of the central nervous system based on descriptions of 30 clinical cases grouped by the level of complexity of neurosonographic diagnosis and interpretation of its results. Clinical cases affect various pathological conditions — stenosis and occlusion of extra- and intracranial sections, arteritis, venous sinus thrombosis, vascular malformations.

For ultrasound and functional diagnostics specialists, neurorentgenologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, vascular and endovascular surgeons, cardiologists, as well as for doctors of other specialties who encounter cerebrovascular diseases in their practice.
