“Source localization has to become much more easy to use. It is a useful tool, but it must be tailored to clinical needs”
Over years electrical source localization was some very complicated piece of magic. Running through highly specialized software with lots of options and parameters to choose made it far to difficult for everyday use in a clinical environment.
EpiSource, AIT’s new source localization software, will finally change this. We developed a clinical tool that works out of the box. Mark spikes in the EEG, the system will do the rest. Use seizure activity and get a nice and detailed movie of the source of EEG activity over time. You want to have even more detailed calculations? Load an available MRI-scan and your patient’s individual head model will be available with just a few mouse clicks.
Easy to use.
Going one step beyond the detection of seizures and spikes we support 3D-representation of the epileptic activity on the MRI directly within your review software. EpiSource builds up on EpiScan and EpiSpike and performs fast source localization of spikes and ictal EEG activity. Almost no user interaction is required making it easy for neurologists to utilize advanced methods for EEG evaluation.
Get the source of your seizure activity
EpiSource can analyze rhythmic seizure activity in your patient’s EEG. Mark seizures in the EEG or use the automatic seizure detection EpiScan and EpiSource will localize the underlying sources. The result will be displayed in a detailed movie that will show you the evolution of the source of the seizure over time.
Of course EpiSource will work with spikes, too. Select by hand or use the AIT’s EpiSpike and calculate the source of your averaged spike.
Combine it with EpiScan and EpiSpike.
Combine EpiSource with the AIT’s seizure detection EpiScan and you will get a detailed movie of ictal source localization automatically immediately after recording. No more time consuming switching between different software packages. It will all be there right at your fingertip.
Interested in the origin of spikes? Take the spike clusters you get from AIT’s spike detection EpiSpike and use it for source localization.
Use an individual or standard head model
You have a high resolution MRI from your patient? Use it to generate an individual head model to boost the accuracy of source localization. And it's easy. A novel, innovative procedure in EpiSource makes the calculation of the head model a breeze. Select the MRI-file and you are almost done. Forget all the research tools with their wealth of parameters to choose from. Source localization 2013 is parameter free.
