We concentrate on the non-classical neurocritical applications of transcranial b-picture sonography, i.e., everything apart from investigating the vessels for their own sake. Starting with a female patient with ICH due to sinus thrombosis, we discuss the neuroanatomy of the mesencephalic and diencephalic slices and consider

  • quantification of midline shift
  • screening for temporal or deep ICH
  • monitoring of ICP (using the pulsatility)


  • The Widder (in its recent new edition)
  • This article on using transcranial midline shift assessment in deep ICH
