:: Compumedics Neuroscan announces the release of
CURRY-SCAN 7 Neuroimaging Suite
March, 2012. Compumedics Neuroscan, the global leader in EEG-MEG-Neuroimaging processing is excited to announce the immediate availabilty of its newest software suite for all Neuroscan systems.
CURRY-SCAN 7 Neuroimaging Suite (CURRY 7). CURRY 7 advances the CURRY software and now integrates the Acquisition and Signal Processing features of the SCAN software. The full CURRY 7 suite includes the ability to acquire EEG and conduct all necessary signal processing of EEG and MEG data. CURRY 7 will also integrate and co-register multiple functional and image modalities in a single software package including MRI, CT, fMRI, PET and SPECT image data. Thus, brain activity can be localized with maximum accuracy and visualized in its anatomical context. Advanced reporting and exporting tools provide all the data and graphics needed for publications.
The Compumedics Neuroscan CURRY 7 software replaces both the SCAN software and the CURRY software product lines. While CURRY 7 is a single software package, its parts are licensed individually so they can be combined to tailor the exact software tool that is needed by the customer. The license levels are: Acquisition, Signal Processing,Basic Source Analysis, Advanced Source Analysis, with Network and Digital Video options. See the Neuroscan web site (www.neuroscan.com) for CURRY 7 Equivalents of the current product line.

The three day sessions covered MagLink hardware and software demonstrations. Daytime and evening sessions of "Live on Line" Data Acquistion and Analysis of the EEG and ERP recorded live in the MRI were conducted.
Also demonstrated: removal of Gradient Artifact and Removal of Ballistocardiogram, Examples of Analysis for EEG and ERP. A final session provided an overview of CURRY - Current density Recontruction and applications into EEG in the MRI.
About Lawson Health Research Institute:
