TARGET AUDIENCE
This educational activity is directed to clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons, trainees in these disciplines and other physicians and researchers who utilize clinical neurophysiological techniques and knowledge in the diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of the nervous system.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this program, the learner should be able to:

  1. Describe the underlying physics of MEG generation and recording;
  2. Describe the most common and efficient organization of an MEG laboratory;
  3. ldentify epileptiform MEG waveforms with and without EEG correlates;
  4. Process MEG and EEG data with source localization software;
  5. Interpret dipole models of MEG and EEG epileptiform spikes and normal evoked fields;
  6. Distinguish abnormal MEG transients from normal variants; and
  7. Provide a localization of MEG and EEG activity to aid in presurgical epilepsy evaluations.

ACCREDITATION STATEMENT
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Polices of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) and the American Clinical Magnetoencephalography Society (ACMEGS). ACNS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

CREDIT DESIGNATION
ACNS designates this activity for a maximum of 6.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
