Global MEG Research Studies/News
Sensitivity of magnetoencephalography as a diagnostic tool for epilepsy: a prospective study
The objective of this study was to determine the benefit of routine MEG with regard to diagnostic gain relative to frequently used examinations such as routine EEG, EEGsd, or 24-hour EEG, when available. We hypothesized that the sensitivity and specificity of routine MEG would be comparable to or higher than that for the above-mentioned EEG examinations. Furthermore, a diagnostic gain using routine MEG may be expected for epileptiform discharges that are not apparent on EEG. Click the link below for a full study.
