Video: Cerebrovascular Neurosurgeon on the Importance of Flow Measurement During Cerebrovascular Surgery
Many cerebrovascular neurosurgeons use a Doppler flow probe to measure flow velocity during a procedure. However, a Transit-time ultrasound micro-flowprobe provides more objective volume flow measurements during cerebrovascular surgical procedures.
Dr. Sophia Shakur, a neurosurgeon practicing at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Maryland, says of flow measurement:
“Oftentimes, neurosurgeons only have access to a regular doppler flowprobe, which is somewhat subjective because you can only listen to the sound of the flow with the doppler probe. Whereas the Charbel Micro-Flowprobe gives you a volumetric measurement in millileters per minute, which is much more of an objective measurement rather than a subjective sound that you’re relying on so the measurement that you get is much more accurate and the accuracy results in better outcomes.”
