The Neurovascular Ultrasound courses present the anatomy, pathophysiology and hemodynamics regarding the extra- and intracranial cerebral circulation. Carotid duplex sonography, color-flow imaging, carotid intima-media thickness measurement, transcranial Doppler (TCD), embolus detection and new developments in ultrasonographic methods are presented during both lectures and hands-on scanning lab sessions. The emphasis is on clinical applications, case examples and principles of interpretation. The courses are designed as a one week curriculum and participants are encouraged to attend for the entire week. However, the first three days focus on principles, physics and extracranial carotid sonography, while the last two days focus on TCD. Either may be attended separately.
