Wow! This looks promising!!!! Maybe Vascular ultrasound will surpass the Temporal Artery Biopsy (TAB) as the "gold standard," for diagnosing GCA?
“We think these results implicate that ultrasound should not only be a first-line imaging test in patients presenting with cranial symptoms, but also in patients suspected of GCA presenting with constitutional symptoms, ...If this examination is included in the standard examinations in the fast-track clinics, it may overcome the delay in diagnosis and patients can be treated earlier." ~ Berit Dalsgaard Nielsen, MD,
