Intracranial Volume and Pressure Load Tolerance Evaluated by Continuous Measurement of Doppler Flow Velocity in Intracranial Vessels in Cats
In order to study the noninvasive evaluation of intracranial hemodynamics during intracranial hypertension a technique employing pulsed Doppler ultrasound (MF-20 microvascular Doppler, EME) was developed to measure blood flow velocity in the basal arteries of cats. Flow tolerance to volume and pressure loading was assessed by changes in the Doppler flow velocity and wave form.
