Abstract

The purpose of this review is to describe recent developments in field of neurosonology applied in acute ischemic stroke, both in diagnosis and therapy. Ultrasound allows a better etiopathogenetic definition of acute stroke, essential to impress effective thrombolytic therapy. They also have a therapeutic role enhancing thrombolysis by insonation of intracranial occlusion areas. Moreover, this technique is followed by innovative use of microbubbles, able to further accelerate fibrinolysis.
