Ultrasound-enhanced systemic thrombolysis

Ultrasound-Enhanced Systemic Thrombolysis is a medical technology.

Researchers at the Texas Medical Center have been using a technique called Ultrasound-Enhanced Systemic Thrombolysis (transcranial doppler ultrasonography) to treat stroke-causing blood clots. It is thought that transcranial doppler ultrasonography aimed at residual obstructive intracranial blood flow may help expose thrombi to tissue plasminogen activator.

Studies have shown that complete recanalisation or dramatic clinical recovery can be increased by more than 19% when using transcranial doppler ultrasonography.
