Abstract

An objective is to develop an innovative non-invasive absolute ICP meter which does not need calibration of the system “individual patient - non-invasive absolute ICP meter” and to perform healthy volunteer studies in order to prove the clinical value of innovative non-invasive absolute ICP meter. The achieved agreement between mean aICP and SD for the independently studied three groups of healthy volunteers is an evidence that phase contrast MRI method and proposed ultrasonic method of non-invasive absolute ICP measurement are free from systematic errors and do not need the calibration of the system "individual patient - non-invasive ICP meter".
