The minimal clinically important difference (MCID) is the smallest change in an outcomes instrument deemed relevant to a patient. MCID values proposed in spine research are limited by poor discriminative abilities to accurately classify patients as "improved" or "not improved." Furthermore, the MCID should not compare relative effectiveness between two groups of patients, though it is frequently used for this. The minimum detectable measurement difference (MDMD) is an alternative to the MCID in outcomes research. The MDMD must be greater than the MCID for the latter to be of value and the MDMD can compare change between groups.

The measurement of magnetic fields over the head generated by electric currents in the brain. As in any electrical conductor, electric fields in the brain are accompanied by orthogonal magnetic fields. The measurement of these fields provides information about the localization of brain activity which is complementary to that provided by ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY. Magnetoencephalography may be used alone or together with electroencephalography, for measurement of spontaneous or evoked activity, and for research or clinical purposes.
