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 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.

Recent Advances in Diagnostic and Surgical Tools for Epilepsy

We learn about the Stealth Autoguide and Visualase systems that can work in collaboration to locate and eliminate tiny areas of the brain from which seizure activity is emanating. We also take a closer look at MEG, a diagnostic tool that can be used in concert with EEGs and MRIs to provide more detailed brain mapping and localize seizure activity in preparation for surgery.

Advanced Imaging in Epilepsy: How MEG Can Assist in Surgery

In this webinar, viewers will learn how MEG is a key part of the epilepsy surgery evaluation, including information about the basics and safety of a MEG study, and hear about how MEG can help the surgeon by mapping key functions (speech, motor, and vision) onto their MRI for use in the operating room.

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.

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.*

*TRIUX™ neo is available for sale in EU and USA markets. In other geographical areas, contact your local MEGIN representative. TRIUX™ neo is intended to non-invasively locate regions of epileptic activity within the brain and, in conjunction with other diagnostic data, in neurosurgical planning. All other applications are research in nature. Please contact for data references and any further information.
