Thermal measurement of cerebrospinal fluid flow rate in hydrocephalus shunt

Abstract

This paper presents a novel mechanism for convenient in vitro measurement of cerebrospinal fluid flow rate in hydrocephalus shunts. Thermal time of flight method has been employed in the measurements conducted on a modified shunt system covered with artificial skin. The shunt tube is proposed to include bio-compatible materials such as titanium for better… (More)
