Non-invasive technologies for intracranial pressure/volume measurement

Authors: Ragauskas, A.,   Petkus, V.

The paper shows that innovative technologies for noninvasive monitoring, of the cerebral blood flow autoregulation, cerebral blood flow pulse and slow waves also for the registration of the reactions to the neurodiagnostic tests can be developed on the basis of the precise measurement of brain parenchyma acoustic characteristics. The innovative technological equipment for such measurement has been developed. The clinical studies proving the validity of the concepts chosen have been carried out. For the first time the innovative non-invasive method has been designed for the ICP absolute value measurement without the necessity of individual calibration of the system "non-invasive meter - patient".
