Whole-head MEG scanners have been manufactured by a variety of vendors from the early nineties until the present. The significant design features of all instruments available in the marketplace today were established early on, with only incremental improvement since then. However, available cryogenics, sensors, electronic components, circuits and software have all been dramatically improved during that same period. York Instruments has taken advantage of this opportunity to design a revolutionary new MEG system that is more robust and accurate, liquid Helium free, highly modular, takes advantage of modern advances and yet has the ability to keep pace with changes in technology going forward.
For the clinician, this means faster, more accurate diagnosis, especially of those patients suffering from epilepsy. For the neuroscientist, this means detection of even the most subtle changes in brain activity. For translational researchers, this means an open platform to speed the development of new indications.
