The clinical need for needle-based therapies capable of accessing tissues unreachable by conventional needles has motivated substantial research into steerable needles (see [1] and [2] for a review of these technologies). In particular, it has been observed that curved paths can be useful in percutaneous procedures [3]. Gilbert, et al., showed that(More)
BACKGROUND The recent development of MRI-guided laser-induced thermal therapy (LITT) offers a minimally invasive alternative to craniotomies performed for tumor resection or for amygdalohippocampectomy to control seizure disorders. Current LITT therapies rely on linear stereotactic trajectories that mandate twist-drill entry into the skull and potentially(More)
The aim of this paper is to discuss about various feature selection algorithms applied on different datasets to select the relevant features to classify data into binary and multi class in order to improve the accuracy of the classifier. Recent researches in medical diagnose uses the different kind of classification algorithms to diagnose the disease. For(More)
This paper reports the results of feature reduction in the analysis of a population based dataset for which there were no specific target variables. All attributes were assessed as potential targets in models derived from the full dataset and from subsets of it. The feature selection methods used were of the filter and wrapper types as well as clustering(More)
Epilepsy is a debilitating, potentially fatal, seizure-causing neurological disorder that will affect approximately 1% of people worldwide in their lifetimes [1]. Medication-based treatment is ineffective for an estimated 40% of epilepsy patients [1]. As an alternative to medication, surgical removal of the hippocampus (commonly, the origin of epileptic(More)
Epilepsy is a prevalent neurological disorder affecting 65 million people globally [1]. Anti-epileptic medications fail to provide effective seizure control for 30% of patients, placing them at a 7-17% risk of Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy and recurrent seizures. Surgical resection of the seizure focus is a potentially curative treatment for patients(More)
