Ultrasound of the brain

Ultrasound of the brain is used for diagnosing motor disorders (Parkinson’s disease, tremors) and distinguishing between illnesses. The ultrasound transducer is placed on the temple area and an image of the midbrain is displayed on the computer screen, which shows anatomical structures located in the region (substantia nigra, raphe nuclei, the third ventricle of the brain); these will be measured and can be used to assess the presence or non-presence of Parkinson’s disease, and the possibility of another disease with Parkinson’s symptoms.

Our centre is the only one in Estonia where this test is performed.
