Overview

A radiological examination of the temporal artery with ultrasound yields a halo sign. Ultrasound of the temporal artery may be helpful in the diagnosis of temporal arteritis. Findings on an ultrasound suggestive of temporal arteritis include hypoechoic halo around the lumen of the temporal artery. The halo is suggestive of edema in the temporal artery wall. Ultrasonography can help for guiding biopsy in temporal arteritis.
