RÉSUMÉ

Multidirectional transcranial ultrasound monitoring can be used to prove quantifiable effects of acupuncture stimulation in the brain. This third part of the review article gives a short introduction in monitoring cerebral blood flow velocity and summarizes the scientific results in this area of research. New constructions from the Medical University of Graz that can be used for evidence-based computer-controlled acupuncture are described. With these new methods and concepts, reproducible effects of needle and laserneedle acupuncture stimulation in cerebral blood flow velocity can be objectified for the first time.
