Novel AI algorithm may be the key for a breakthrough epilepsy treatment

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, information science, robotics/AI

A group of scientists from the University College London has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can detect drug-resistant focal cortical dysplasia (FCD), a subtle anomaly in the brain that leads to epileptic seizures. This is a promising step for scientists toward detecting and curing epilepsy in its early stages.

To develop the algorithm, the Multicentre Epilepsy Lesion Detection project (MELD) gathered more than 1,000 patients’ MRI scans from 22 international epilepsy centers, which reports where anomalies are in cases of drug-resistant focal cortical dysplasia (FCD), a major reason behind epilepsy.
