Hi,
Transcranial Doppler (TCD) is a diagnostic tool used to assess the cerebral vasculature noninvasively. Compared with other techniques, it is inexpensive, safe, and reliable.  It is useful for the evaluation of real-time evaluation of the intracranial cerebral circulation. This was requested by your doctor especially with the abnormal EEG from before. For the interpretation of your EEG result, I suggest that you discuss this with your attending physician because the findings should also be correlated with your symptoms and medical history. Take care and best regards.
