York Instruments MEGSCAN

MEGSCAN contains high-sensitivity HyQUID sensors and offers cryogen-free operation, combined with modern electronics and software. The new system breaks new ground for MEG.

Getting to Grips with the Problem

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) affords functional brain imaging with excellent spatial and temporal resolution. The scans are completely non-invasive and silent. Neuroscientists appreciate the sensitivity of MEG to even the subtlest of brain signals. For clinicians, the information gained through MEG leads to better surgical outcomes, especially in cases of severe epilepsy or brain lesions near eloquent cortex.

Developing the Design

MEGSCAN users enjoy dramatically improved usability in data acquisition and review. The dedicated suite of MEGSCAN software is installed on operator consoles outside the MSR, where participant preparation, data acquisition, and data visualisation and processing can be managed. A separate interface for system configuration restricts access to system-level settings.

Finalising a Solution

York Instruments has incorporated recent dramatic developments in cryogenics, sensors, electronics and software into MEGSCAN. This revolutionary new MEG system is robust, accurate and highly modular. Above all, its flexibility of design is intended to keep pace with ongoing technological developments.
