anterior communicating or posterior communicating arteries (see also Chapter 3). The first branches of the circle of Willis include anterior, middle and posterior cerebral arteries. These arteries have first- and second-degree branches (i.e. Ml and M2 segments of the MCA [11]) that along with the intracranial vertebrobasilar system can be evaluated with cerebrovascular ultrasound through the intact skull [5],
