Since its introduction in the early eighties, TCD has established itself as a valuable non-invasive tool for assessing the bloodflow in the major arteries of the brain. As such, it is important to either help prevent, or, alternatively, to help assess the damage of Stroke. Today, the emphasis is slowly changing from a purely diagnostic tool to a (longer-term) monitoring tool, that helps protect the brain during and after procedures with increased risk to the patient's brain. The development of easy-to-use and reliable emboli detection will further this goal.
