CAIR Medtech Seminar #2 : Computer-Assisted Planning for Image-guided Neurosurgery
The Epilepsy Navigation (EpiNav) software platform combines advanced deep learning image processing algorithms and computer assisted planning to aid neurosurgeons in stereotactic surgeries. EpiNav has been demonstrated to provide stereotactic plans with similar accuracy as expert human planners. Since 2017 EpiNav has been used prospectively to plan patient surgeries at the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery (United Kingdom) with no observed adverse effects. In this talk Dr. Sparks will overview the underpinning technologies of EpiNav, how it is being used in clinical practice, and her current research in deep learning and data-driven approaches to better understand and represent neuroimaging.
