The objective of this roundtable webinar is to foster a collaborative and informative discussion among medical experts focusing on physicians' experiences with robotic Transcranial Doppler (TCD) in the detection and diagnosis of Right-to-Left Shunt. We will be discussing the most recent multi-center study published in October’s Stroke Journal and CHI Memorial’s 3-year study that compares robotic TCD and TTE for shunt detection. In addition, Dr. Mark Rubin, Dr. Ruchir Shah and Dr. John Volpi share their clinical research, best practices, and real-world experiences in using robotic TCD technology for the detection of RLS. This event will serve as a valuable resource for healthcare providers, enabling them to make more informed decisions and improve patient outcomes in the field of cardiology and neurology.
This webinar explores the benefits of incorporating autonomous transcranial Doppler (TCD) technology into the workflow process for stroke programs in hospitals. TCD is a critical tool for monitoring blood flow in the brain for stroke management. However, to ensure seamless integration and efficient use of the technology, the implementation of autonomous TCD systems requires coordination between different disciplines, particularly neurology and cardiology. Dr. Ajay Yadlapati and Tina Villafranca discuss the advantages of using autonomous TCD in stroke care and share real-world success stories from team members and patients that have already benefitted from this technology. Dr. Yadlapati also discusses strategies to improve coordination between neurology and cardiology departments, including roles and responsibilities to ensure streamlined patient care, improved communication, and better allocation of resources.
In this webinar, Dr. O’Brien outlines her experiences utilizing TCD in sub-Saharan Africa on a broad scale. She discusses utilization in African children with Sickle Cell Disease, Bacterial Meningitis, and Cerebral Malaria.
This webinar covers the utility of transcranial Doppler studies compared with echocardiography in the screening evaluation of patients with a right-to-left shunt, most commonly associated with a patent foramen ovale (PFO).
This webinar highlights the recently published study that evaluated 100 patients who received a newly implemented robot-assisted transcranial doppler (rTCD/NovaGuide) with bubble injection. It was used to find right-to-left shunts (RLS) as a potential cause of stroke in young patients, as defined by age <65.
Transcranial Doppler is an extremely effective tool for intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring that can result in better patient outcomes and decreased length of stay. In this webinar, you will learn the recently updated guidelines from the American Society of Neurophysiologic Monitoring and American Society of Neuroimaging for the use of TCD in the surgical and intensive care settings.
Understand the clinical work up for PFO and the latest guidelines highlighting the effectiveness of PFO closure. Discuss the pitfalls of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and the implications of the BUBL clinical trial results.
Transcranial Doppler is a critical part of the diagnostic workup for a wide range of diseases affecting cerebral blood flow, including stroke. In this webinar you will learn the techniques to interpret and analyze TCD waveforms to effectively assess and treat patients with suspected neurological conditions.
Transcranial Doppler (TCD) is an extremely powerful tool that offers an insight into the complexity of the severely damaged brain. In this presentation, we will review established and new applications of TCD in the intensive care unit.
Review current methodology for the bubble exam to further aid in diagnosing a right-to left shunt. Master the techniques required to perform accurate PFO bubble exam through a live demonstration of the NovaSignal Platform.
Learn how TCD compares to the current standard of care diagnostic techniques including TTE and TEE in detecting PFO using the bubble technique. Discover how to better assess the underlying cause of a stroke, allowing you to make more informed decisions and ultimately better patient management and care.
Receive an overview of the physiology of Sickle Cell disease and gain a basic understanding of the critical role of Transcranial Doppler and Sickle Cell. Also learn how to assess for vasculopathy in Sickle Cell using TCD.
Learn how to determine cerebral ischemia/stroke risk through evaluation of cerebral vasomotor reserve.
Review the evidence and utility for interoperative monitoring with TCD. Learn how TCD can be used to deliver clinically actionable information during surgery. Examine case studies from the Houston Methodist hospital.
The higher sensitivity of TCD compared to echo bubble studies relies heavily on the use of correct techniques and appropriate supplies.
A discussion of the use of intraoperative TCD during cardiac procedures for real-time evaluation of changes in perfusion or embolic events.
