RICOH MEG brain scanner​

Dedicated to helping improve outcomes for neurological conditions.

Neurological disorders are one of the greatest threats to public health. And while many advances have been made since the advent of new brain scanning technologies that allow us to see and explore the living brain, there are many mysteries remaining, which have the potential to unlock how we treat and hopefully cure these devastating neurological diseases.

Advances in brain imaging technology, such as the Magnetoencephalography (MEG), enable us to see and explore the living brain. The Ricoh MEG detects faint signals within the brain, providing a mapping of brain activity to be able to measure electromagnetic activity deep within the brain. With this type of brain scanner, clinicians and researchers can explore the inner regions of the brain that could hold answers to treatments and hopefully cures for debilitating neurological conditions.

Ricoh's Magnetoencephalography (MEG) system provides mapping of brain activity by non-invasively measuring the magnetic fields produced by the brain. Ricoh's MEG brain scanner features:

  • The ability to measure deep within the brain so you can detect and record brain activity down to the level of the hippocampus and hypothalamus. In addition, the number of sensors and their robust sensitivity contribute to your ability to see more than precious technologies.
  • 160 superconducting sensors in the helmet detect and amplify magnetic fields generated by neurons up to 7 1/2 centimeters from the sensors.
  • Coaxial gradiometer sensors reduce magnetic interference and advanced algorithms filter out noise so signals of interest can be easily identified.

A big challenge for treating neurological disorders is locating what areas of the brain are responsible for critical brain functions.

Help reduce brain imaging analysis time.

software on computer screen

We help improve neurological analytics with:

  • Software and integrated algorithms to reduce analysis time compared to previous Ricoh technology.
  • Data integrated from other scans (PET, fMRI and EEG) to analyze combined information more efficiently in a single user interface.
  • A single scientifically-based interface: a large 43" screen that consolidates all data points.
  • Information displayed in a natural sequence that aligns with clinician analysis and decision-making.
  • Valuable information from non-invasive pre-surgical neurological mapping.
