Abstract

The recording of an EEG while the patient is undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data acquisition, as far as we are aware, has not been previously accomplished. By careful selection and arrangement of analog multiplexed cable-telemetry equipment to eliminate both ferrous and RF sources, a stable, readable EEG can be obtained without interfering with the diagnostic quality of the MRI. This arrangement does not cause localized heating or burning at the electrode siets. This technical capability permits more accurate neurophysiological control during the acquisition of echo planar functional MRI studies as well as providing indications of anatomical localization of electrical sources.
