Fifty carotid arteries were evaluated by direct common carotid Doppler examination. The audible signal was judged to reflect either a patent or occluded internal carotid artery. When compared with angiography, overall accuracy was 88 per cent (44/50). This test was demonstrated to be a simple, rapid adjunct to other noninvasive tests used in the evaluation of patients with suspected extracranial cerebrovascular disease.
