However, the clinical applications of TCD are growing, Did you know that TCD monitoring in TAVI, In the Feb, 2022, Delica EMS-9D PRO Robotic TCD has been used for patient monitoring during structural intervention to help neurologist to identify the cerebral embolic and enhance the safety of this procedure. We have received positive feedback from neurologist with high quality signal and reliability.
