Özet

Background Subtraction of ictal and interictal single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images is known to be successful in localizing the seizure focus in the pre-surgical evaluation of patients with partial epilepsy. A computer-aided methods for producing subtraction ictal SPECT co-registered to the magnetic resonance image (MRI) (the SISCOM method) is commonly used. The two registrations involved in SISCOM are (1) between the ictal-interictal SPECT images, which was shown to be the more critical, and (2) between the ictal image and MRI.
