“Source Localization in Epilepsy Evaluations”
Host: John S. Ebersole, MD
Date: May 15 — 17, 2015
Venue: Overlook Medical Center, Summit, NJ
Compumedics is pleased to announce its next Clinical Workshop featuring Curry Neuroimaging Suite software. This hands-on workshop, which is intended for physicians and EEG/MEG technologists, is specifically focused on the evaluation of epilepsy EEG and MEG data.
Course duration is 2 ½ days, beginning Friday morning with an introduction to basic EEG/MEG review with Curry, followed by evoked response data analysis. Friday afternoon’s session will feature inter-ictal and ictal data review, spike/seizure marking, event segregation by field analysis, and averaging. On Saturday, source analysis methods for the above data types will be reviewed, including the use of individual MRI and realistic head models. Sunday morning will be dedicated to intracranial EEG review, including integration with MRI and CT to localize electrodes and co-registration with other functional imaging data, such as PET.
All hands-on sessions will be performed with Curry software. Participants are to bring their own Windows laptops and a wheel mouse. Curry software and course data will be installed onsite. Laptops should have as a minimum Windows XP as the OS. Windows 7 or 8 are preferred.
The training will be conducted by Compumedics’ top research scientists, with clinical lectures provided by Dr. Ebersole.
