CIBER-BBN’s exploitable technology patent portfolio is available to companies and organizations to promote its transfer to the industrial sector, generate collaborative technological development projects and favour the use of the research results.
Each of the “technological specification sheets” describes a technology, its industrial application and innovative advantages, among other aspects. Said information can be expanded through the contact shown in each of them.
An accurate localization of epileptogenic the focus in patients with intractable focal seizures is essential to ensure success in surgical treatment.
The SISCOM (Subtraction Ictal SPECT Co of-registered to MRI) methodology is one of the techniques used to localize the epileptogenic focus that combines functional information from ictal and interictal SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) studies with anatomical information from an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging).
The SISCOM Analysis plu-gin of FocusDET is a new research-oriented tool to perform SISCOM methodology in a user friendly interface in a unique environment.
FocusDET has been developed by using the GIMIAS framework (www.gimias.org) within an intramural CIBER-BBN project, the Virtual Physiological Human Toolkit (VPHTK). The following groups participated in the development of FocusDET: 1) Biomedical Imaging Group at the Universitat de Barcelona (GIB-UB), 2) Biomedical Imaging Technology at Universidad Politecnica de Madridd (BIT-UPM) and 3) Computational Imaging and Simulation Technology in Biomedicine at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (CISTIB-UPF).
