- transcranial Doppler;
- carotid duplex;
- neurovascular examination;
The initial evaluation of patients with acute cerebral ischemia is time-sensitive, and bedside examination should provide quick answers to the following key questions:
- 1.Is there a disabling deficit?
- 2.What is the mechanism of the event?
- 3.Can the damage be potentially reversed?
- 4.Is the patient at risk of deterioration?
This section focuses on information obtainable by a clinical observation and ultrasound at bedside beyond just the neurological stroke severity assessment and complimentary to multimodal CT or MRI.
