The aim of the present study was to report the frequency of suspect lung opacities on routine acute stroke imaging.METHODS: Seven hundred and fifty-seven consecutive stroke patients evaluated for intravenous thrombolysis treatment within 4.5 hours of symptom debut, from June 2009 to December 2011, were included in a prospective registry on which this analysis was based.
