Abstract

In addition to conventional electroencephalographic (EEG) analysis, magnetoencephalography (MEG) provides the possibility of sophisticated electrophysiological analysis of epileptic network activities. In addition, combinations of MEG/EEG with multimodal imaging provide promising approaches for delineation of functionally important and epileptic cortex. The following clinical applications of MEG in epileptology are discussed: localization of focal epileptic activity sources to guide invasive electrophysiological procedures; localization of focal epileptic activity sources to guide detailed planning of neurosurgical procedures (e.g., with neuronavigation), with the goal of minimal tissue removal; elucidation of spatial relationships of epileptic spike generation and subtle anatomical lesions; postoperative follow-up and, in cases where the first neurosurgical treatment has failed to render the patient seizure-free, facilitation of the decision concerning the possibility of a second operation; screening of patients who are possible candidates for epilepsy surgery.
