Patient-friendly brain imager gets green light toward first prototype

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M — It might not start a fashion trend, but Sandia National Laboratories is designing a wearable brain imager. The National Institutes of Health has granted Sandia $6 million to build the prototype medical device that would make magnetoencephalography (MEG) — a type of noninvasive brain scan — more comfortable, more accessible and potentially […]

Researchers at Sandia work on new way to image brain

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories researchers want to use small magnetic sensors to image the brain in a way that’s simpler and less expensive than the magnetoencephalography system now used. Magnetoencephalography is a noninvasive way to measure tiny magnetic fields produced by the brain’s electrical activity. The measurements, able to catch activity as fast […]
