Compumedics is pleased to present further information about our exciting ORION LIFESPAN™ MEG product.

Compumedics has installed the first Orion LifeSpan™ MEG at Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI) in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.  BNI is an international leader in the treatment, research, and education of brain and spinal diseases, conditions, and injuries. The Institute performs more neurosurgical procedures annually than any other facility in the United States. The primary use of the MEG is for precise planning before epilepsy resection surgeries, including both adult and pediatric patients.

The second Orion LifeSpan™ MEG will be installed at the world-renowned Tianjin Normal University (TJNU) in Tianjin, China. TJNU’s scientific capabilities are world-class and have won numerous awards for humanities and social sciences research achievements. The TJNU Brain Function Imaging Centre will include MRI, FNIRS, EEG/ERP, TMS and TCDS laboratories, alongside the Orion LifeSpan™ MEG. Research focuses on high efficiency learning, mental health, cognition and studying intellectual development of school-age children in the areas of reading, learning, neural mechanisms, etc.

Compumedics has overcome earlier MEG (Magnetoencephalography) system barriers with the Compumedics Neuroscan Orion LifeSpan™’s increased precision coupled  with fully-integrated MEG  “gold standard”  brain analysis  software CURRY™.

At the heart of the new Compumedics Neuroscan Orion LifeSpan™ MEG system is the patented double relaxation oscillator super conducting quantum interference device (DROS; SQUID) sensor system.

Additionally, a unique dual-helmet dewar, enabling optimal brain imaging localisation, applicable to the greater population including both adult and paediatric populations, is coupled to a vibration-free, vacuum-cooling system for virtual 100% coolant recycling with continuous 24/7 operation.  These advancements contribute to transforming functional brain-health, but also provide a sustainable business model reinforced by high barriers of market entry, including patented technological and scientifically proven clinical deployment.

Over a 30-year period Compumedics Neuroscan has established the “gold standard” neurophysiological multi-modality (EEG, MRI, CT, SPECT, PET convergence etc.) and MEG brain analysis platform.  In parallel, over a 30-year period the Korean Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS) MEG team, led by Dr. Lee have produced the most advanced MEG brain imaging scanner.

MEG provides at least 4-5 orders of magnitude of temporal resolution (speed of brain functional or cognitive measures) over other traditional functional MRI, PET or other conventional imaging systems.  The new Orion Lifespan™ MEG presents for functional brain imaging today what MRI was to structural or metabolic imaging in the 80’s and beyond.
