Abstract

The ability to noninvasively monitor intracranial pressure would be a valuable aid to the diagnosis and treatment of hydrocephalus and mass lesions of the brain. An experiment is described that measures the acoustic properties of the skull, in animals, under normal and elevated intracranial pressures. Results show intracranial pressure strongly influences the acoustic response, and at least one feature of the response is related to intracranial pressure in a consistent manner.
