This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

CytoProbe's (US) noninvasive, acoustic device for diagnosis of intracranial pressure (ICP) has started human clinical trials at the NASA Ames Research Center. The trials will be performed by the Center's Life Sciences Division under Alan Hargens. The device obviates the need for surgical procedures to measure ICP, says CytoProbe; current measurement techniques comprise drilling a hole in the skull and inserting a catheter with a pressure transducer.
