Did you know that Minnesota Epilepsy Group has the only clinical MEG machine (Magnetoencephalogram) in the state of Minnesota? As a level 4 epilepsy center we offer a comprehensive package of diagnostic services and expertise no other center can provide.
Magnetoencephalography uses superconductive sensors to map the magnetic fields created by the brain’s electrical activity. For people with seizures it can pinpoint where the seizures are coming from. Those seizure areas can be plotted onto a picture of your brain from an MRI.
MEG can also map the location of brain functions including motor, sensory and primary language areas. This kind of mapping is especially important when removing brain tumors and can provide your neurosurgeon vital information on locations of vital function.
