9 2 Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound in Neurocritical Care Assessment of Intracranial Pressure An accurate, precise and noninvasive alternative for measurement and monitoring of ICP/CPP remains a “holy grail” in neurointensive care. TCD FVs and the PI have been considered as potential surrogate candidates with variable success. 92, respectively, to detect ICP higher than 20 mm Hg. 8, there is a likelihood of about 10% that CPP is less than 60 mm Hg. 12 Notwithstanding the above caveats, TCD FVs and PI can still serve as noninvasive screening tests for compromised intracranial compliance and potentially inadequate cerebral perfusion for selected patients.
