Atlas of Neurosonology
This bilingual issue is written in English in order to become a comprehensive source of neurosonological information for clinicians and researchers of the international scientific community. It is also written in Bulgarian to provide these colleagues a rapid access to the rich body of pathophysiological, clinical and specific neurosonological information. A switch between English and Bulgarian language is always possible and invites the international reader to share and enjoy reading and studying with his/her Bulgarian colleagues and friends. Mobility and flexibility are major advantages of ultrasound bringing the imaging study to the patient, and not vice versa. This holds true for the emergency room, the stroke unit or the intensive care facility. Equally useful is the ability to investigate the status of the vascular tree in an ambulatory setting, or to repeat the investigations with reasonable costs as often as desired for follw-up.
Ultrasound-based prevention will play an increasing role in the practise of neurological services worldwide. The authors of this book are well recognised as leading researchers and clinicians in the field of stroke and neurovascular ultrasound. I had the pleasure of witnessing their excellent work and scientific contributions over the past decades. E. Bernd Ringelstein, M.D., F.A.H.A., F.E.S.C.
