Hocus Pocus: Brain Ultrasound When Part Of The Skull Is Missing

Posted Date: Mar 9, 2020

  • Investigator: Vasisht Srinivasan
  • Specialties: Neurology, Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery, Stroke
  • Type of Study: Observational/Survey

Ultrasound is used for many reasons, though brain ultrasound is limited due to the skull blocking ultrasound waves. In patients who have had bone removal, there now exists a window through which ultrasound can image the brain. This study aims to categorize the ways this can help improve patient care.
