BACKGROUND Accurate identification of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is often difficult especially when an electrocardiogram (ECG) does not show typical elevation of ST segment. The aim of the present study was therefore to evaluate the efficacy of magnetocardiography (MCG) for diagnosis of ACS in patients with acute chest pain presenting(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the usefulness of three-dimensional (3D) scalp EEG source imaging (ESI) in partial epilepsy in comparison with the results of presurgical evaluation, magnetoencephalography (MEG), and electrocorticography (ECoG). METHODS The epilepsy syndrome of 27 partial epilepsy patients was determined by(More)
To validate newly developed methods or implemented software for magnetoencephalography/electroencephalography (MEG/EEG) source localization problems, many researchers have used human skull phantom experiments or artificially constructed forward data sets. Between the two methods, the use of an artificial data set constructed with forward calculation attains(More)
We carried out an magnetoencephalography (MEG) study to record cortical responses elicited in the left hemisphere by ending verb phrases, which had syntactic or semantic anomalies, in Korean sentences of subject-object-verb order. Using the high temporal and spatial resolution of MEG, the study was aimed at identifying neural activities that occur during a(More)
Electrophysiologic information as well as anatomic information to detect coronary artery disease is important for accurate diagnosis. A diagnostic tool that can detect patients with unstable angina pectoris (UAP) or non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) with severe stenosis would be beneficial for patients and clinicians. Magnetocardiography has(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Magnetocardiography (MCG) has been proposed as a noninvasive diagnostic tool to risk-stratify patients with myocardial infarction (MI) and ischemia. The purpose of this study is to find the MCG parameters that are sensitive enough to detect the non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients. METHODS MCG data were(More)
We propose independent component analysis (ICA) as a pre-process for synthetic aperture magnetometry (SAM) in magnetocardiogram. SAM is a very useful method for source current imaging. However, SAM cannot separate one source from the others when there are time-correlated multi-sources, especially for successively active sources. The proposed method(More)
SUMMARY Multichannel superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) systems based on double relaxation oscillation SQUIDs (DROS) were developed for measuring magnetocardiography (MCG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) signals. Since DROS provides large flux-to-voltage transfer coefficients, about 10 times larger than the DC SQUIDs, direct readout of the(More)
To study the relationship between the varying degrees of cognitive load and long-range synchronization among neural networks, we utilized a dual-task paradigm combining concurrent word recall working memory tasks and oculomotor tasks that differentially activate the common frontoparietal (FP) network. We hypothesized that each dual-task combination would(More)
Computation of headmodel and sourcemodel from the subject’s MRI scan is an essential step for source localization of magnetoencephalography (MEG) (or EEG) sensor signals. In the absence of a real MRI scan, pseudo MRI (i.e., associated headmodel and sourcemodel) is often approximated from an available standard MRI template or pool of MRI scans considering(More)
