Multiple Modality Biomagnetic Analysis System
As an emerging new modality, biomagnetic analysis presents exciting opportunities while raising some difficult issues. During the past four years researchers at General Electric, The University of Ulm and The University of Chieti have created a state of the art biomagnetic analysis system, and have addressed many of these difficulties. One of the critical aspects of a biomagnetic analysis system is how it handles different types of data. Many of the clinical requirements for a successful system require fast, efficient and flexible data management. This paper describes what those requirements are and how we addressed them. We start by providing a high level overview of our system. We then list some of the pertinent clinical requirements, present our solutions and describe how well they have worked. Finally we discuss future directions.
