Abstract : Precise localization of the epileptogenic zone is very essential for the success of epilepsy surgery. Epileptogenicity index (EI) computationally estimates epileptogenicity of brain structures based on the temporal domain parameters and magnitude of ictal discharges. This method works well in cases of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy but it showed reduced accuracy in neocortical epilepsy. To overcome this scenario, in this study, we propose Epileptogenicity Rank (ER), a modified method of EI for quantifying epileptogenicity, that is based on spatio-temporal properties of Stereo EEG (SEEG).
