Abstract

Our aim was to describe the standard operating procedure for transcranial Doppler investigation of the ophthalmic artery in pregnancy, determine the interobserver and intraobserver variability using power M-mode technology, and review the existing literature. Accordingly, 27 healthy pregnant or immediately postpartum women were enrolled and underwent transcranial Doppler investigation of the ophthalmic artery using power M-mode technology. Good interobserver and intraobserver variability was observed for both, especially with respect to the clinically important indices. Transcranial Doppler power M-mode examination of the ophthalmic artery is easy and reproducible and holds a great deal of potential for investigation in pregnancy.
