Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography-angiography, and ultrasound images of internal carotid artery dissection in a patient with acute ischemic stroke. Arterial changes occurring during the first few days were detected by serial ultrasound examinations. Neurologic and functional outcome are provided and therapeutic options discussed.
