Neurosonology is non-invasive, portable, and has excellent temporal resolution, making it a valuable and increasingly popular tool for the diagnosis and monitoring of neurological conditions when compared to other imaging techniques.

    This guide looks beyond the use of neurovascular ultrasound in stroke to 
    encompass a wide range of other neurological diseases and emergencies. It 
    offers a practical approach to the examination of patients, interpretation 
    of ultrasound studies, and the application of neurosonology to the 
    development of management and treatment strategies. Each chapter 
    incorporates a thorough and clear procedural methodology alongside 
    scanning tips for trainees; this step-by-step approach is further enhanced 
    by example images and focused diagnostic questions. Authored and edited by 
    international experts, this practical manual of neurosonology is an 
    invaluable resource for neurologists, neurosurgeons, intensivists, 
    radiologists and ultrasonographers.
