MEG: A Powerful Tool for Epilepsy Clinicians

MEG is a valuable tool for characterizing and localizing epileptic activity as well as for localizing brain function. The scans are non-invasive, silent, and well-tolerated by patients of all ages, including young children.

MEG is an exciting technique that helps us understand how the brain works in real-time to improve the lives of patients affected by neurological or psychiatric disorders.*

MEG supplements techniques such as MRI, CT, and PET scans by providing real-time measurements of brain activity so physicians can see what’s happening in the brain.

What is MEG?

MEG is an imaging technique that measures ongoing brain activity on a millisecond-by-millisecond basis, showing where in the brain the activity is produced. MEG is entirely non-invasive, silent, and with no applied magnetic fields, radiation, or injections of any kind.

The use of MEG together with other diagnostic imaging modalities provides more time-sensitive information. MEG is an incredibly useful and more direct, yet non-invasive tool for clinicians trying to understand why the brain is not working normally in a patient.

*TRIUX™ neo is approved for use to non-invasively localize regions of active areas and epileptic activity within the brain and, in conjunction with other diagnostic data, in neurosurgical planning. All other applications are investigational.
