This article presents a novel strategy for searching for embolic etiologies in the acute phase of ischemic strokes (which means even climbing into CT with a handheld device!). "Why?" you may rightfully ask. That is a really great question, and I'm glad you asked. I guess you will have to check out this episode to find out! https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/102 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32532655/
