The nature and role of vascular abnormalities in migraine are controversial. Transcranial doppler ultrasonography provides a simple, noninvasive and reliable measure of flow velocity changes in individual intracranial arteries as a representation of cerebral blood flow. The high temporal resolution of this technique is particularly useful in the study of rapidly evolving pathophysiological events. This paper is a review of the use of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography in the study of migraine with and without aura. In particular, conflicting results and possible future applications are discussed.
