Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR NON-INVASIVE DETERMINATION OF INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE
Abstract:
An apparatus and method for noninvasively measuring intracranial pressure of a subject using an ultrasound transducer. The transducer is used to measure arterial wall movement of an intracranial segment and an extracranial segment of the subject's ophthalmic artery as different external pressure forces are applied to the orbital area of the subject. When the waveforms of arterial wall movement between the intracranial segment and the extracranial segment are similar the intracranial pressure can be determined.
