A system and method for the non-invasive portable ultrasound-based measurement system of the Cardiovascular blood pressure is presented, wherein the blood pressure measurement model is calibrated to the simultaneous direct measurements by pressure transducers during the catheterization. The model is based on the image time series processing estimating the changes of the oscillating traceable regions via the introduction of the new ultrasound generalized M-Mode and the notion of the derived image. Once calibrated the system is ready to recalculate the pressure in the calibrated region, such as Left Atrium according to the subsequent non-invasive ultrasound measurements. The system has been successfully tested on animals (sheep) under subsequent catheterisations.
