Abstract

Vasospasm is the one of common complications of subarachnoid hemorrhage that leads to delayed cerebral ischemia. Various diagnostic tools have been used to detect vasospasm. Transcranial Doppler ultrasound, dynamic surveillance device that is feasibility to monitor patient after subarachnoid hemorrhage and providing the treating physicians of cerebrovascular hemodynamic information that help making decision for definite treatment.
