We have been developing a SQUID magnetoneurograph system for non-invasive functional imaging of the spinal cord, spinal nerves, and peripheral nerves. In particular, for the spinal cord, body surface potential measurement does not provide sufficient spatial resolution required for diagnosis. Therefore, "magnetospinogram" based on biomagnetic measurements is the only method of functonal evaluation for spinal cord and is a powerful tool for the diagnosis of spinal cord diseases. In this presentation, we will report on the latest development of our magnetoneurograph system and their clinical applications.
