A virtual tool allows epilepsy surgery training (e-Pilepsy)
Vicomtech-IK4 participates together with Bilbomática, ERESA and la Fe Health Research Institute in the e-Pilepsy project. It consists of developing an advanced navigation system that will provide neurosurgeons support tools for operations.
This will allow, in real operations, the surgeon to have detailed knowledge of the specific morphologic and functional anatomy of the surgical field of each patient. Neurosurgeons will be able to determine the source (of epileptic seizures) through the visualization of the patient’s functional image. This permits the verification of different surgery strategies on virtual terrain.
