Noninvasive muscle activity imaging using magnetography

" A type of human imaging spectroscopy is presented based on magnetic field recordings obtained from different human body sites. This methodology allows a totally noninvasive approach to functional imaging that offers a significant step toward passive functional spectroscopy. A prerequisite for its use requires the generation of somatic electrical fields as occurs during muscle contraction or during the activation of other tissues or organs such as those found in the abdominal cavity. As a possible instance, the activation of uterus and abdominal musculature, in early labor, may also be imaged (11). In addition, the imaging of real-time pathway conduction and the localization of activity in peripheral nerve, spinal cord, brainstem, deep mesencephalic structures, and thalamocortical activity, may also be obtained." {Credits 1}
