Internal carotid artery dissection represents the most common cause of cerebral ischemia in patients under 50. The increased number of cases observed is due to progress in diagnostic technologies. The aim of this study was to assess the role of ultrasonography in the diagnosis and follow-up of internal carotid artery dissection. The authors analyse three cases that are particularly representative of the use of ultrasonography. Ultrasonography plays a primary role in the diagnosis of internal carotid artery dissection, in particular owing to its low cost and increased availability at Medical Centres, making it the gold standard for the diagnosis and follow-up of this pathology.
