The material presented in this essay was accumulated from routine examinations performed with a color Doppler imaging device during the past 9 months. No attempt has been made to compare color-flow Doppler imaging with conventional duplex Doppler or with angiography. Rigorous clinical trials will be necessary to determine the exact impact of this new imaging technique on the diagnosis of carotid vascular disease. However, on the basis of our initial clinical evaluations, we have little doubt that color-flow Doppler imaging will lead to further improvements in the noninvasive evaluation of extracranial neurovascular disease.
