The brain perfusion patterns were examined in normal versus atherosclerotic patients using transcranial pulse inversion and intermittent ultrasound during constant infusion of levovist. The mean signal enhancement postcontrast in healthy volunteers was 25.9% at the basal nuclei and 46.8% at subcortical level as against 22.4% and 38.3%. Thus, the transcranial and intermittent ultrasound of brain parenchyma during constant flow rate venous infusion appears to be a promising technique.
