About This Lecture:

Topics mentioned in this video : TCD history, Who uses TCD in clinical practice?, Other clinical applications, Basic concepts: TCD, Instrumentation needs vary with clinical setting and application, Before attempting TCD/TCDI, Circle of Willis: overview, Accessing intracranial anatomy, The first step is finding a signal, How are vessels identified: TCD?, The spectral waveform is crucial, Why emphasis TAMM?, Color Doppler adds assurance to spectral acquisition, Protocols are fundamental, Protocols and technique are specific to type of examination, Expected depth, TAMM: adults, Factors impacting intracranial flow, Common clinical applications of TCD, Ruptured intracranial aneurysm and vasospasm, Sonographic example, Hemodynamics of vasospasm, Vasospasm protocols and criteria, Instrumentation needs vary with clinical setting and application, Evaluation of pediatric patients, TCD in sickle cell anemia, Focal TCD velocity increase, TCD in sickle cell anemia, TCD in sickle cell anemia, Pediatric exams: specific issues, TCD in sickle cell anemia: pediatric, Tracking and documenting anatomy , Sites of intracranial narrowing: pediatric sickle cell disease, TCD exam for sickle cell anemia, Interpretation of TCD: STOP, Never compromise …, Other clinical applications of TCD, Acute stroke: intervention and TCD , TCD monitoring, Emboli detection with TCD, Intracranial stenosis, Spectral waveform: Stenosis, Left carotid stenosis, Intracranial findings: left carotid stenosis, Summary, Performing a TCD protocol exam for sickle cell anemia patients , Value of head diameter measurement, Pediatric TCD protocols: record all waveforms, Transtemporal approach: pediatric , Step through the entire MCA, Continuing MCA protocol, Bifurcation signal: BIF, Internal carotid artery: dICA, Internal carotid artery: terminal ICA , Anterior cerebral artery: ACA, Compare MCA to ICA, Posterior cererbral artery: PCA, Posterior cererbral artery, Tracking PCA to midline: top of basilar or TOB , Protocol for basilar exam: suboccipital approach , Bifurcation basilar artery: TOB, Sonographic example, Interpretation of TCD: HbSS, Interpretation of TCD: trials, TCD is standard of care for patients with sickle cell anemia , Thank you for your attention,
