Workpackage 3 – Neuroimaging

Summary

Actions undertaken to promote harmonisation of best practices in neuroimaging evaluation of rare and complex epilepsies that will provide state-of-the-art procedures in the field. Creating a database of neuroimaging findings in the specific rare and complex epilepsies with further research implications.

Objectives

  • Creation of an expert group from participating centres for re-reviewing of neuroimaging findings. Reviewing of neuroimaging data on individual basis for precision diagnosis of rare and complex epilepsies. Participation of an expert group in research projects
  • Exchange best practice and promote harmonisation of care in the neuroimaging of rare and complex epilepsies (guidelines and standards). Imaging standards for rare and complex epilepsies translated into a care pathway.
  • An evolving web-based platform offering a comprehensive set of information and tutorials. Improve skills of EU professionals involved in the management of rare and complex epilepsies (education and training).
  • Creation of a database of anonymized neuroimaging findings of specific rare and complex epilepsies. Use of neuroimaging data in research projects with wide European collaboration.
  • A central web based post-processing facility for surgical evaluation (Morphometric Analysis Programme or similar, control databases etc., as extended from E-pilepsy)

Deliverables

  • D 3.1 Report on survey imaging protocols
  • D 3.3 Open access publication on imaging standards and guidelines for rare and complex epilepsies at month 24
  • D 3.4 Secure neuroimaging database at month 24
  • D 3.5 Review on Online IT platform utilised for imaging review at month 42
  • D 3.6 Number of projects using EpiCARE neuroimaging data at month 48
  • D 3.7 Number of centres that changed their imaging standards on the basis of recommendations at month 48
  • D 3.8 Number of cases given second opinion through re-reviewing of neuroimaging data at month 60

Milestones

  • M 7 Ability for online review of images at end of year 3
