OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of transient response second harmonic imaging (HI) by means of ultrasound to assess abnormalities of cerebral echo contrast agent enhancement in patients with acute stroke. METHODS The study comprised 25 patients with acute onset of hemispheric stroke (<24 h) with sufficient insonation conditions and 14 control subjects without cerebrovascular disease. All stroke patients had HI, extracranial and transcranial colour coded duplex examinations of the arteries… CONTINUE READING
