Good morning America recently had an excerpt on a Meg Scanner and said there were 30 in the US. The daughter with seizures was diagnosed at age 7 and controlled until about 16 when she was having 90-100 seizures a day. She had a Meg scan done after surgery she had didn't help. The MEG scan showed the place where her seizures started and they were able to do surgery to take out this small piece. She has now been a year without seizures.
My daughter was diagnosed at age 10 and has never had optimate control. At 12 she had a VNS and had 3 batteries in 7 years. Currently, she is 23 and has a Deep Brain Stimulator and is on her second battery, still without optimal control and also with 4 AEDs.
