Laboratory for ultrasound diagnosis of brain disorders

The Laboratory for ultrasound diagnosis of brain disorders has been established in 2003 at the Clinical Center of Serbia Neurology clinic Section II of the Clinical Department of Brain Circulation Disorders and Headaches.

The ultrasound laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art ultrasound units designed for examination of the brain arteries, brain tissue, heart, thyroid gland and soft tissues of the neck, and it also includes portable apparatus intended for examinations performed in bed-ridden inpatients.

The Ultrasound Laboratory employes five neurologists, one cardiologist, one radiologist and two nurses specially trained in ultrasound diagnostic methods, such as Ass. Dr Alekandra Pavlović and Ass. dr Milija Mijajlović, as well as Prof. Dr Zagorka Jovanović, neurologist, as a coordinator. Activities of the above-mentioned specialists are carried out according to the determined schedule, having in mind their other professional obligations. The following examinations are performed in the Ultrasound Laboratory:

  • I - Neurosonological:
    • PExamination of the magistral neck arteries supplying the brain with blood – presence of atherosclerotic plaques or other changes, degree of arterial stenosis, arterial blood flow rate, examination of the neck veins.
    • Determination of the carotid artery stiffness index.
    • Transcranial Doppler (TCD)– examination of the brain arteries.
    • Detection of microembolic signals  – MES.
    • Detection of right-to-left cardiopulmonary shunt (bubble test).
    • Determination of vasomotor reactivity of cerebral arteriolae.
    • Examination of temporal and other arteries in case of vasculitis.
    • Ultrasound examination of the brain parenchyma – parenchymal echo in Parkinson’s disease and other brain diseases.
  • II - Cardiological- echocardiography.

Webinars over Internet

Predvideli smo da se svakog trećeg četvrtka u mesecu, sa početkom u 12 časova, stručnoj i naučnoj neurološkoj javnosti Srbije obrate naši eminentni stručnjaci i predavači sa temama koje su aktuelne i koje zaokupljaju neurološku profesionalnu i istraživačku znatiželju kod nas i u svetu.
Webinari će se održavati u formi kratkih predavanja (20 minuta sa dodatnih 5 minuta za pitanja) u kojoj će auditorijum sačinjavati lekari na specijalizaciji na našoj klinici. Details on this link.
