® PRODUCTS OVERVIEW
® is a state-of-the-art system for performing
high-resolution EEG and event-related potential (ERP) studies and for
integrating the results with magnetic resonance images. Results of these
studies provide unique views of structural and functional neuroanatomy.
Its analysis and visualization functions quickly and easily quantify features
from EEGs and ERPs, leading neuroscience toward the goal of uniting brain
electrical activity with brain anatomy.
®'s spatial and temporal
signal processing functions are flexible and intuitive to use. Sophisticated
image-processing techniques enable you to
create realistic 3-D models
of your subject's head and brain from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
data and to precisely align EEG activity from scalp or subdural electrodes
with the underlying anatomical structures. Thanks to the patented system
for integrating EEG electrode positions with MRIs, and a unique patented
method, called DEBLURRING™, MANSCAN
brings you the world's sharpest and most detailed high-resolution EEG
images without the distortion due to conduction through the skull.
®'s spatio-temporal dipole
source localization and volume current imaging functions allow you to
test hypotheses about the generators in the brain of EEG recorded at the
scalp, showing results on the subject's MRI.
® seamlessly integrates
all the hardware, software and data files needed to efficiently perform
advanced high-resolution EEG studies. MANSCAN
includes quick application electrode caps, an efficient device called
XCALIPER™ for measuring electrode positions, and an advanced digital
amplifier called MICROAMPS™. MANSCAN
®'s sixth generation,
point-and-click, 32-bit software is fully integrated with the Microsoft
NT/W2000/XP operating system running on a PC.
A medical grade version of the EEG-MRI coregistration,
DEBLURRING™ and source modeling
components of MANSCAN
®, called IMAGE VUE™, is
available from Nicolet Viasys Healthcare.
