by Thomas Deffieux, Charlie Demene, Mathieu Pernot and Mickael Tanter
Current Opinion in Neurobiology 2018, 50:128–135
A review article covering the main articles on functional ultrasound (fUS imaging) of the brain activity was published on February 23rd, 2018, in Current Opinion in Neurobiology. This article published by the pionneering team on fUS imaging (Inserm U979, Wave Physics for Medicine, Langevin Institute, CNRS, ESPCI Paris) presents an extensive review on the fUS imaging bibliography. It provides an overview of the current preclinical and clinical applications of functional ultrasound neuroimaging and its main interest and features for neuroscience.

In the last decade, ultrasound imaging has gained new capabilities and produced new insights in the field of neuroscience. The development of new concepts, such as ultrafast ultrasound, has enhanced Doppler sensitivity by orders of magnitude and has paved the way for ultrasonic functional neuroimaging. In this review, we position ultrasound in the field of neuroimaging and discuss how it complements current tools available to neurobiologists and clinicians.
