Researchers Use New Technique To Make Brain Scans Better

2017 04 Jul

A team of researchers at MIT worked with doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital and other institutions to devise a way to boost the quality of brain scans so that they can be used for large-scale studies of how strokes affect different people and how these people respond to treatment. The paper was presented at the Information Processing in Medical... Read more

MEG Imaging Improves Concussion Detection

2016 13 Dec

Use of magnetoencephalography (MEG) to create high-resolution brain scans, coupled with computational analysis, could enhance detection of concussions that conventional scans might miss. A new study published in PLOS Computational Biology describes how MEG, which maps interactions between regions of the brain, could detect greater levels of neural... Read more
