Introduction Intracranial pressure (ICP), the pressure inside the skull, is a key physiologic metric that is used to diagnose numerous neurologic conditions, including those stemming from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Today, ICP is measured by drilling a hole into the patient’s skull and surgically implanting a sensor. The current gold-standard implantable sensor is limited to use within intensive care units (ICU) due to the invasiveness of the procedure and subsequent risk of infection. In fact, 40% of severe TBI patients in the United States and nearly 66% of patients in Europe do not received the recommended ICP monitoring, as suggested by Brain Trauma Foundation, because of limited technical expertise. Neural Analytics is dedicated to developing and bringing to market RapidICP, a noninvasive method for measuring ICP using a portable ultrasound technology.
