Leading-Edge Technology Maps Brain Function
Magnetoencephalography (mag-ne-toe-en-sef-a-log-ruff-ee), also called a MEG scan or study, is a sophisticated, noninvasive brain imaging technology. A MEG scan is the newest, most advanced method for detecting, recording, and analyzing the magnetic fields produced by the brain’s electrical activity.
MEG studies are painless and safe for children and adults, requiring no needle injections, radioactivity, or strong magnetic fields. The MEG scan is completely silent.
