Clinical Imaging Post-Processing to Improve Surgery in Focal Cortical Dysplasia Cases

Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is a brain malformation that commonly causes seizures and can be removed in epilepsy surgery. Automated techniques were implemented to detect FCD within a clinical MRI that can guide surgical remediation. This project developed a post-processing pipeline of structural MRI (T1 and FLAIR) to quantify local cortical deformation and grey-white blurring associated with FCD. It is hoped that this project will result in an analysis pipeline that can help in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
