Researchers at the University of Copenhagen demonstrate for the first time that diet induced obesity (DIO) leads to raised intracranial pressure (ICP) and subsequent clinically relevant symptom development.

In the paper “The impact of obesity‑related raised intracranial pressure in rodents” published in Scientific Reports journal, Westgate and collaborators used the Phoenix MICRON® image-guided OCT system, along with the Phoenix MICRON® Insight software, in the measurement of the retinal anatomical changes caused by intracranial hypertension in obese rats. The Problem: Intracranial pressure (ICP) measures the
