Title: METHOD, SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR TRACKING CORTICAL STIMULATOR LOCATIONS
Abstract:
A method comprises: storing, in a memory of a computing device, (i) a preoperative image of patient tissue obtained using a first imaging modality and registered to a first frame of reference, and (ii) anatomical data defining a plurality of neural tracts in the patient tissue; receiving, at a processor connected with the memory, a location in the first frame of reference for application of a cortical stimulator pad to the patient tissue; receiving, at the processor, a range of influence of the cortical stimulator pad; based on the location and the range of influence, selecting, at the processor, an intersected neural tract from the plurality of neural tracts, a portion of the intersected neural tract being located within the range of influence; and controlling, at the processor, the display to render the preoperative image, the location and the intersected neural tract according to the first frame of reference.
