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)
—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(More)
We present a quadrature volume coil designed for brain imaging of a macaque monkey fixed in a sphinx position (facing down the bore) within a stereotactic frame at 3 T, where the position of the monkey and presence of the frame preclude use of existing coils. Requirements include the ability to position and remove the coil without disturbing the position of(More)
