Abstract

Intracranial depth electrodes are commonly used to identify the regions of the brain that are responsible for epileptic seizures. Knowledge of the exact location of the electrodes is important as to properly interpret the EEG in relation to the anatomy. In order to provide fast and accurate identification of these electrodes, a procedure has been developed for automatic detection and localization in computed tomography data. Results indicate that in the vast majority of cases the depth electrodes can be automatically found. The localization of the electrodes versus the anatomy showed an acceptably small error when compared to manual positioning. Furthermore, interactive visualization software is developed to show the detected electrodes together with pre-operative MRI images, which enables the physician to confirm that the electrode is placed at the expected anatomical location.
