Abstract

The elevation of intracranial pressure (ICP) resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant cause of death and disability. This paper presents a non-invasive microwave technique for ICP monitoring by focusing on radio wave transmission/reflection through the head, where annular slot antennas (ASA) with proven penetrating beam in tissue are used. A circular ASA for this application operating at 0.9 GHz is also simulated and characterized in terms of resonance frequency (fr) and reflection coefficient (S11). Moreover, an ASA is also characterized as a high efficiency embedded antenna for our previously developed 2.4 GHz ICP implant.
