Intraoperative Dopplersonography

  • Joachim M. Gilsbach

Satomura and Kaneko (1957, 1959, 1960) were the first to describe the use of an ultrasound Doppler method for investigating blood flow in the peripheral arteries and in the heart. Since then, the transcutaneous application of the method had become a standard medical procedure for noninvasive examinations of blood vessels, particularly those with stenoses and occlusions in the cervical region (Büdingen et al. 1982, Spencer and Reid 1981).
