Role of noninvasive imaging of cerebral arterial system in ischemic stroke: Comparison of transcranial color-coded doppler sonography with magnetic resonance angiography
Conclusion: Intracranial atherosclerosis was found to be the predominant distribution of cerebral atherosclerosis. TCCS is a safe method for evaluation of proximal basal cerebral arteries in the intracranial circulation with relatively better sensitivity in the anterior circulation.
