The complexity of current stroke treatments requires detailed vascular imaging information. Vascular imaging using ultrasound is a safe, inexpensive, and portable technique that provides continuous real-time hemodynamic information, which allows flow changes to be monitored over prolonged time. Ultrasound imaging is in continuous development, which has led to a growing number of situations where ultrasound can be helpful, foremost in dynamic and rapidly changing clinical scenarios like acute stroke. The aim of this chapter is to review the main indications of vascular ultrasound in acute stroke, including extracranial steno-occlusive lesions diagnosis and its consequences on distal vasculature, intracranial stenosis diagnosis, acute intracranial occlusion, recanalization, and reocclusion diagnosis and monitoring, therapeutic sonothrombolysis, and vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage.
