Vasospasm Diagnosis

Diagnosis of vasospasm is made by some combination of clinical, cerebral angiographic, and transcranial doppler ultrasonographic factors.

It can be detected accurately by using MEPs. MEPs are a feasible bedside tool for online VS detection in an intensive care unit and, therefore, may complement existing diagnostic tools 1).

see Angiographic vasospasm.

see Transcranial Doppler for vasospasm diagnosis.
