A new algorithm for focal cortical dysplasia detection

Takeaway

  • Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) in children with intractable epilepsy can be better identified using the two-step Naïve Bayes classifier method applied to T1- and T2-MRI, and FLAIR sequence.

Why this matters ?

  • FCD, a frequent cause of childhood epilepsy, is challenging to identify; this new algorithm could improve detection rates.
