For Ultrasound Neuro-Monitoring, the Carotid Artery is the main supply of blood to the brain. The latter is at risk of blockages which may lead to Carotid Stenosis among other conditions.
The Ultrasound Scanner imaging modality comes into the picture to detect these blockages. Using a High Accuracy Ultrasound Probe, the physician can decide on the appropriate intervention needed.
For eg: The Doctor may have the need to perform an Endarterectomy. After a Carotid Endarterectomy is performed, the Neurosurgeon may continue to use Carotid Ultrasound using the SIFULTRAS-5.34 to ensure that the Endarterectomy worked and the blockage is gone.
For the Carotid Ultrasound, Images of the Brachial Artery and common Carotid are captured using a Linear Array Ultrasound Scanner Of a 9MHz Frequency like the SIFULTRAS-5.34. On the other hand, the Internal Carotid images are captured at 13MHz using the SIFULTRAS-3.53.
In this case you can find that thanks to their Color Doppler capabilities. These Ultrasound Scanners SIFULTRAS-5.34 and SIFULTRAS-3.53 are useful for performing this operation.
Moreover, The Portable Ultrasound can help the doctor determine the risk of Cerebral Embolization: By using Ultrasonography NM, the medical professional can identify plaques in the carotid arteries using the SIFULTRAS-5.43, and detect passage to the brain or very tiny bits of blood clot or plaque material.
