What is Transcranial Doppler Testing?
Transcranial Doppler or TCD for short, is a 15 to 20 minute non-invasive, painless and extremely safe ultrasound looking at all of the major arteries and vessels to your brain. This test allows us to assess your risk for stroke, ocular stroke or other vision threatening diseases by measuring the Artery and Vascular blood flow.
Here are some of the common symptoms and conditions that may qualify for the TCD:
• Ocular Migraine
