Aims

Multimodal coregistration uses multiple image datasets coregistered to an anatomical reference (i.e. MRI), allowing multiple studies to be viewed together. Commonly used in intractable epilepsy evaluation and generally accepted to improve localization of the epileptogenic zone, data showing that coregistration improves outcome is lacking. We compared seizure freedom following epilepsy surgery in paediatric patients, evaluated before and after the use of coregistration protocols at our centre, to determine whether this correlated with a change in outcome.
