Trans cranial Doppler (TCD) Ultrasonography

The Cutting Edge in Diagnosis and treatment of Stroke (Paralysis)




The department of Neurology is backed by Neurosurgery and Neuro Radiology; together these three departments deliver the most aggressive treatment in cases of Stroke.






Stands for Transcranial Doppler. It is a form of ultrasonography and is used in the diagnosis of Stroke along with the CT Scanner, MRI and MRA.
It is a test that measures the velocity of blood flow through the brain`s blood vessels. It is used for the diagnosis of stroke, emboli, stenosis, vasospasm from a subarachnoid hemorrhage and bleeding from a ruptured aneurysm. This test is relatively quick and can be done at the patients bedside unlike CT Scan & MRI, where the patient is taken to the imaging department.






TCD can be done at the bedside, is noninvasive and gives "real time" (means instant)imaging of the blood vessels of the brain.





When done?

It is usually done to diagnose the following conditions:

  • Acute Stroke Diagnosis and therapeutics
  • Cerebral Emboli
  • Monitoring Vasospasm in Subarahnoid Hemorrhage
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Diagnosis of PFO
  • Cerebral Circulatory Arrest
  • Cerebral Vasomotor reactivity
  • Intracranial Stenosis

Thrombolysis is a type of treatment given in stroke where clots in blood vessels are dissolved by medicines. Use of ultrasound enhances the effect of thrombolysis. Hence thrombolysis is combined with TCD Ultrasonography to get better results in cases of stroke.
