Non-invasive Functional Imaging at Meadowlands Hospital:
Clinical and Research Opportunities.

The Neuromagnetic Brain Imaging Laboratory (NMBIL) at Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center is a
non-invasive brain imaging facility dedicated to advancing the application of Magnetoencephalography
(MEG) for both clinical diagnostics and brain research. We provide functional brain mapping service
for patients undergoing surgical evaluation for epilepsy, brain tumor, and arteriovenous malformations
and engage in research aimed at expanding the clinical application of MEG and understanding the
neurofunctional relationship between large-scale dynamic brain activity and behavior, in health and
disease. Additionally , MHMC has acquired a Hitachi open-MRI system fitted with a neurodiagnostic
suite, as well a state-of-the-art Siemens’ SPECT-CT. These equipment will be installed in the next 6-
8months and will provide functional MRI (fMRI) , spectroscopy, and diffusion tensor imaging capability.

As a teaching hospital of Touro College of Medicine, MHMC will be offering an introductory lecture
series on non-invasive methods of functional brain mapping which will cover clinical and research
applications of MEG, EEG, MRI, SPECT, near-infrared spectroscopy, and transcranial magnetic
stimulation. The NMBIL is also excited to announce clinical research opportunities starting in the
fall of 2012. Successful applicants will be trained in clinical applications of MEG (and possibly multi-
modal imaging applications) and carry out individually tailored research projects designed to lead to
publication by the end of rotation.

For more information about MEG at MHMC or potential research opportunities, please contact the lab
director, Dr. Paul Ferrari, at pferrari@meadowlandshospital.org.
