Q: What are the best places to obtain TCD (Trans Cranial Doppler)?

Answer: The bones of the skull block the transmission of ultrasound, so areas  with thinner walls, called insonation windows get used for procedure. For Most preffered  areas are the temporal region above the cheekbone/zygomatic arch, through the eyes, below the jaw, and from the back of the head.
