Course description: 

Transcranial Doppler Imaging (TCDI) is a non-invasive vascular duplex test used to evaluate the circle of Willis and the vertebrobasilar arteries using various acoustic windows. 

This one-day program, led by Muhammad Hasan MBBCh, RPVI, RVT, provides the advanced skills needed for those with prior knowledge of performing Transcranial Doppler Imaging (TCDI).  This course goes beyond the fundamentals to explore how TCDI is used in the identifying and monitoring of cerebral vasospasm, sickle cell disease, intraoperative monitoring, assessing for Brain Death, functional reserve testing as well as the diagnosis of PFO using TCDI bubble study. Educational material will be presented in the form of detailed lectures, correlative case studies as well as supervised hands-on scanning sessions.

Course objectives: 

Upon completion of this course, the learner should be able to:

  • Fully understand the normal intracerebral arterial anatomy and collateral pathways
  • Explain and discuss proper indications for TCDI
  • Explain and discuss the basic imaging principles of Transcranial Doppler Imaging
  • Describe acoustic windows, equipment and technique for a complete exam.
  • Describe typical depths, flow velocities and spectral Doppler waveforms morphology for normal cerebral circulation.
  • Explain the effects extracranial arterial stenosis/occlusion has on the cerebral circulation.
  • Identify the limitations of TCDI
  • Demonstrate the appearance of focal intracranial arterial stenosis or occlusion.
  • Describe how TCDI is used in the identification and monitoring of cerebral vasospasm, sickle cell disease, intraoperative monitoring, assessing for brain death, functional reserve testing as well as the diagnosis of PFO using TCDI bubble study.
