  • Ultra‐low‐field MRI uses microtesla fields for signal encoding and sensitive superconducting quantum interference devices for signal detection. Similarly, modern magnetoencephalography (MEG) systems use arrays comprising hundreds of superconducting quantum interference device channels to measure the magnetic field generated by neuronal activity. In this article, hybrid MEG‐MRI instrumentation based on a commercial whole‐head MEG device is described. The combination of ultra‐low‐field MRI and… CONTINUE READING
