4.5 Pressure Sensing

This Section describes the ability of medical nanodevices to detect and measure fluid pressure variations while functioning inside the human body. Generation of acoustic signals for power transmission (Section 6.3.2), communication (Section 7.2.1), and navigation (Section 8.3.3) are considered elsewhere. Acoustic macrosensing is described in Section 4.9.1.
