  • JMJ Med Ultrasound 2019 Apr-Jun; 27(2):69-74
  • Hanafi MG, Verki MM, Parei SN
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ultrasound performed on the diaphragm of the optic nerve with acceptable sensitivity can detect patients with an increase in ICP and can be efficacious in expediting the action needed to reduce ICP. Due to the sensitivity and specificity of the ultrasound and high accuracy of the diameter of optic nerve sheath in detecting increase in ICP, as well as considering the fact that ultrasound is a noninvasive and available technique; it can be performed at the patient's bedside.
