High Health oriented Technology
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a noninvasive brain mapping technique used to measure the magnetic fields produced by neuronal electrical activity. MEG study provides medical doctors with conclusive presurgical evaluation of patients with Epilepsy. MEG adds complementary information as the localization of the epileptogenic area and the seizure propagation. Competitive advantages/Main benefits: High temporal resolution and good spatial resolution locating epileptogenic seizure; Quick noninvasive and painless medical test.
The diagnosis is made with HERMES, a data analysis software, developed by the laboratory and with continuous improvement based on the Laboratory Experience and User Feedback. 5 years in operation; 3,000 cases resolved. HERMES is available to users worldwide for download and use: 24,000 visits in the last six months; 2,819 downloads
Research on and applications of MEG data analysis improve medical resolution of up to 80% of unsolved cases through EEG or MRI.
Methodology of epileptogenic seizure location has been developed by the multidisciplinary group of the CCNL researchers (engineers, medical doctors, neurophysiologists, psychologists and neuropsychologists) with more than 15 years of experience and analysis of 3.000 cases.
Epileptogenic seizure location is essential to lead a successful surgical treatment for surgical cases whilst in non-surgical cases, medical report based on MEG is considered as an Epilepsy diagnostic support.
Software Hermes development by Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience Lab: 21 Connectivity Measures. Continuous Improvement based on laboratory experience and feedback from users.
