Cranial diameter pulsations measured by non-invasive ultrasound decrease with tilt

Cranial diameter pulsations measured by non-invasive ultrasound decrease with tilt

In the late 1990s and early 2000s NASA researchers seeking to make sure astronauts would survive safely in extended space flights conducted research that demonstrated cranial bone motion. The work of Toshiaki Ueno, MD, PhD led to Dr. Ueno presently at a special 2004 Cranial Academy Conference on cranial bone motion. Dr. Ueno’s images of the heads of the astronauts immediately before “blast off” and upon return, showed visual proof of cranial bone expansion.

Assessment of calvarial structure motion by MRI

Assessment of calvarial structure motion by MRI

A 2009 study done by Wm. Thomas Crow, DO and Hollis King, DO, PhD, using state of the art MRI imagery analysis from NIH studied cranial bone motion in 20 health subjects. We found that the area within the skull at exactly the same coronal plane of the calvarium changed and was significantly different over 8 separate images.
