Hurricane IKE and the Common Carotid Artery

In the days and hours leading up to the landfall of Hurricane IKE millions of people were glued to the news for storm updates. As IKE approached the GulfCoast, all the local and network TV stations featured loop after loop of weather doppler images of IKE. While most Texans focused on the doppler images of IKE to determine the possible path of destruction, a small number of cardiac patients focused on the echoes and doppler images of an artery to determine the path to healthy blood flow.

Picking up the pieces from IKE’s damage has been hard but I can’t help but think…

Kudos to Mr. Doppler for opening the door to the latest advances in doppler technology.
