Non-invasive brain pressure monitor

    I suggest developing a new noninvasive technique to help monitor brain pressure while reducing patient discomfort and the risk of infection.
    The method will use an algorithm to calculate intercranial pressure based on arterial blood pressure. Arterial blood flow will be measured with a simple device similar to a blood pressure cuff, much less invasive than the conventional drill and catheter used by surgeons.
