"Background: Many efforts have been made to correlate symptoms and cerebral events with Colour Doppler and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The present study was conducted with an objective to find the correlation between carotid doppler suggesting plaques and MRI of those patients suggesting arterial ischemia/infarction.
Methodology: The present cross-sectional study conducted on cases of acute arterial ischemia as suggested by MRI. After stabilization of cases, thorough gray scale examination on Carotid Doppler was done for intima media thickness, presence, location and characterization of plaques were assessed. Spectral Doppler analysis was done and measurements of Peak systolic velocity, end diastolic velocity were obtained on a frozen image.
Results: Out of 100 patients of stroke, 61 % were males and 39 % were females. There were minor differences in percentage of 50% stenosis had large infarct on MRI brain while only 25% of patients with
