Objective: To investigate the role of transcranial doppler ultrasonography (TCD) and plasma adrenomedullin (ADM) in evaluation of vertebrobasilar ischemia (VBI). Methods: The data of TCD of 50 patients with VBI (VBI group) were analysed. The systolic velocity (Vs), diastolic velocity (Vd), mean velocity (Vm), pulsatility index (PI) and plasma ADM of vertebral artery (VA) and basilar artery (BA) of VBI group were recorded, and were compared with those of 50 healthy normal people (control group). Results: The parameters of Vm, Vs and Vd of VA and BA in VBI group were significantly lower than those in control group (P<0.05), and PI in VBI group was significantly higher than that in control group (P<0.05). The plasma ADM in VBI group was significantly higher than that in control group (P<0.05). Conclusion: TCD combined with plasma ADM can serve in the evaluation of disease condition and treatment in patients with VBI. Source

Objective: To investigate the application of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography in evaluation of the effect of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) in hepatocellular carcinoma. Methods: Color doppler ultrasonography and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography were performed to evaluate the blood perfusion features of 120 cases of hepatocellular carcinoma one month after TACE. The results of two imaging methods were compared. Results: There was no difference in the size of tumor measured by two methods. According to the blood perfusion features, active tumors were detected in 37 cases in color doppler ultrasonography, while active tumors were determined in 46 cases in contrast-enhanced ultrasonography. Conclusion: The blood vessel embolism status of tumors and the effect of TACE can be accurately and objectively revealed by contrast-enhanced ultrasonography. Source
