Registration Closes On 31st December, 2022
Workshop Begins On 9th February, 2023

venue: Amrita Advanced Centre for Epilepsy,
Amrita Hospitals, Kochi, Kerala, India

This interactive course on surgically remediable drug refractory epilepsies focuses primarily on pre-surgical evaluation, semiology, scalp EEG, advanced neuroimaging, and intracranial EEG planning and interpretation, surgical approaches including minimally invasive ablation, and the histopathological correlates in MRI Negative epilepsies. The highlights of this program will be hands-on training in SEEG planning and interpretation, basic and advanced post-processing analysis of MRI Brain, PET, and SPECT, and neuropathology.

REQUIREMENTS FOR WORKSHOP

  • Neurologists, child neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neuropathologists with interest in epilepsy surgery
  • Fellows in training, scientists, and technologists of established teams
