Thiopentone is sometimes used for refractory ICP: at adequate doses it causes burst suppression on EEG, reduced metabolic demand and therefore cerebral blood flow and cerebral blood volume, and hence ICP.

Contribution of edema and cerebral blood volume to traumatic brain swelling in head-injured patients.
O'Donoghue surmises that the change in whole brain volume after treatment may be an effect of OSA or that CPAP treatment may have reversed the OSA-induced changes in the cerebral blood volume or in the whole brain water content.
USPIO are investigated as blood pool agents with T1 weighted sequence for angiography, tumour permeability and tumour blood volume or steady-state cerebral blood volume and vessel size index measurements using T2 weighted sequences.
[FIGURE 4 OMITTED] The commercial software application of a deconvolution mathematical model to the contrast time-concentration curves, performed on an offline workstation in as little as 5 minutes, allows the creation of color perfusion maps that are based on the central volume principal: cerebral blood flow (CBF) = cerebral blood volume (CBV)/mean transit time (MTT).
Both approaches permit calculation of physiologic parameters such as cerebral blood volume (CBV), mean transit time (MTT), cerebral blood flow (CBF), and tissue permeability.
However, the magnitude of change in cerebral blood volume was greater than that observed for cerebral oxygenation.
Elevated vascular permeability because of a damaged blood-brain barrier after ischemic stroke can be quantified with perfusion computed tomography (CT), a technique that rapidly evaluates cerebral perfusion by generating maps of cerebral blood flow, cerebral blood volume, and mean transit time.
