Transient ischemic attack (TIA) patients are at high vascular risk. We assessed the value of extracranial (ECD) and transcranial (TCD) Doppler and duplex ultrasonography to predict clinical outcome after TIA. Methods: 176 consecutive TIA patients admitted to the Stroke Unit were recruited in the study. All patients received diffusion-weighted imaging, standardized ECD and TCD. At a median followup of 27 months, new vascular events were recorded. Results: 22 (13.8%) patients experienced andoi:10.1186/1471-2342-9-13 pmid:19642970 pmcid:PMC2730052 fatcat:63mod6wb4vcbllt2ty4jlx25hi
