Applications

1. Epilepsy

MEG is used clinically to locate the area of the brain that is causing the seizure and provides the neurosurgeon with the location of the area to be resected. One third of the 50 million patients with epilepsy cannot be treated with medication and are candidates for surgery. MEG significantly improves the outcome of epilepsy surgery.

2. Brain mapping

MEG is used clinically to map functional areas of the brain prior to tumor removal, affecting 1.6 million people per year. It is a crucial tool to preserve important functional areas of the brain during surgery and avoid irreversible disabilities resulting from their damage.

3. Clinical research

Being the only brain imaging device with high spatial and temporal resolutions, MEG has numerous applications in neurosciences research: early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, rehabilitation after strokes, diagnosis of mental disorder, autism…
