The monitoring and control of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) are the major requirements for the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) or hydrocephalus. Widely used commercially available ICP measuring devices require the use of a tethered fiber optic probe, which can cause complications, such as infection and(More)
A time-domain-reflectometry Smith-chart display is demonstrated to be a valuable diagnostic tool in a variety of situations in time-domain-reflectometry dielectric spectroscopy. A relative reflection coefficient is formed by dividing the Laplace transform of the reflected sample transient by the Laplace transform of the empty-sensor transient and displaying(More)
For what is believed to be for the first time, the dynamic study of wireless intracranial pressure measurements in a swine model of traumatic brain injury is described. This achieves an extremely important milestone, since the measurements demonstrate the system’s robustness, and the feasibility of acquiring wireless readings of the intracranial pressure(More)
INTRODUCTION: Accuracy of targeting is critical for the success of cell transplantation and many other procedures [1]. When such procedures are to be performed in the brain with minimally-invasive methods, it is necessary to have exact knowledge of the position and orientation of the head and brain during both the acquisition of 3D whole-head images and(More)
