Carotid-vertebral and transcranial Doppler ultrasound

This examination involves ultrasound imaging, which allows artery walls and blood flow to be analyzed. This method makes it possible to locate and characterize atheromatosis of the neck and intracerebral arteries, namely plaques with or without stenosis, as well as dissections and vasospasms.  The examination is typically used to prevent strokes and to monitor stenoses. 
Lastly, by using intravenous contrast, a transcranial examination can also be used to detect permeable foramen ovale of the heart.
