Invasive intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) or electrocorticography (ECoG) measures electrical potential directly on the surface of the brain, and, combined with numerical modeling, can be used to inform treatment planning for epilepsy surgery. Accurate solution of the iEEG or ECoG forward problem, which is a crucial prerequisite for solving the inverse problem in epilepsy seizure onset localization, requires accurate representation of the patient’s brain geometry and tissue electrical… Expand


Individualized localization and cortical surface-based registration of intracranial electrodes
A method which coregisters high-resolution preoperative MRI with postoperative computerized tomography for the purpose of individualized functional mapping of both normal and pathological brain activity, and accurately localizes electrodes with respect to an individual's neuroanatomy. Expand
Automated electrocorticographic electrode localization on individually rendered brain surfaces
A method based on a preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) coregistered with a post-implantation CT scan to localize the electrodes and that automatically corrects for the brain shift by projecting the electrodes to the surface of the cortex is presented. Expand
Localization of stereo-electroencephalography signals using a finite difference complete electrode model
A finite difference approach that models the contact impedance and physical extent of each electrode, to localize brain electrical activity from sEEG measurements in a patient with intractable epilepsy, and reconstructed activity associated with multiple types of recurrent ictal spikes observed in s EEG.

EEG source analysis of epileptiform activity using a 1 mm anisotropic hexahedra finite element head model
The proposed FE forward modeling approach strongly simplifies meshing and reduces run-time (37 ms for one forward computation in the model with 3.1 million unknowns), corroborating the practical feasibility of the approach. Expand
Three-Dimensional Visualization of Subdural Electrodes for Presurgical Planning
An accurate method for visualizing subdural electrodes on brain compression effected 3D models that serves as an ideal platform for surgical planning is presented. Expand
Electrode localization for planning surgical resection of the epileptogenic zone in pediatric epilepsy
A novel algorithm for the alignment of intracranial electrodes, extracted from post-operative CT, with pre-operative MRI is developed, able to achieve more accurate alignment of strip and grid electrodes with minimal user input. Expand
Indications and limits of stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG)
In the following chapter, some specific indications are discussed (temporal or extra-temporal, lesional or non-lesional epilepsies) as well as the limits of the SEEG technique, with respect to some epileptological issues during presurgical evaluation. Expand
Biomechanical Modelling of the Brain for Neuronavigation in Epilepsy Surgery
How computational biomechanics can help with pinpointing the invasive electrodes positions with respect to brain anatomy as seen on pre-operative MRI and how this can aid SOZ localisation is discussed. Expand
Localization of dense intracranial electrode arrays using magnetic resonance imaging
An efficient method to accurately localize intracranial electrode arrays based on pre- and post-implantation MR images that incorporates array geometry and the individual's cortical surface is presented. Expand
The accuracy and reliability of 3D CT/MRI co-registration in planning epilepsy surgery
Visualization of subdural electrode positions on a patient's cortex can be accurately performed in the routine clinical setting by 3D CT/MRI co-registration, however, the accuracy of co-Registration is dependent upon having reliable surface fiducial markers. Expand
