The purpose of this chapter is to present ultrasound and, in particular, color duplex sonography (CDS) assessment of spontaneous dissection of the cervical internal carotid (sICAD) and vertebral (sVAD) arteries. The examination, typical ultrasound findings and pitfalls in the acute sICAD and sVAD, detection of microembolic signals, and recanalization will be discussed.
