Ultrasound-enhanced systemic thrombolysis
Ultrasound-enhanced systemic thrombolysis (UEST) is a medical technology that uses ultrasound to enhance the effects of thrombolytic drugs. To treat the blood clots causing strokes, transcranial Doppler ultrasonography is used. It is thought that transcranial doppler ultrasonography aimed at residual obstructive intracranial blood flow may help expose thrombi to tissue plasminogen activator or other thrombolytic drugs.
Studies have shown that complete recanalisation or dramatic clinical recovery can be increased by more than 19% when using transcranial doppler ultrasonography.
