Omni-planar and surface casting of epileptiform activity for intracranial seizure location

Takeaway

  • Cinematic visualization (CV) fusing omni-planar and surface functional projections may provide a useful adjunct for interpreting complex intracranial recordings of epileptiform activity and subsequent surgical planning.

Why this matters

  • Intracranial electroencephalography (ICEEG) recordings provide unparalleled data on direct seizure locations in patients with refractory focal epilepsy (RFE); however, simultaneous reconciliation of deep recording locations and reliable tracking of evolving ictal patterns can be significant challenges.

  • CV may constitute an additional option for investigation of epileptiform activity and surgical planning in patients with RFE, as well as a potential communication tool among healthcare providers; however, further study in other cohorts is required for validation.
