A recent study looks at a hands-free ultrasound device combined with a clot-busting drug that's safe for ischemic patients. According to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, they found that the device, which is placed on the stroke patient's head to deliver ultrasound and enhance clot-busting drug tissue plasminogen activator, uses 18 probes that massage deep ares of the brain where large blood clots that cause stroke reside.
