SuSIE – School on Application and Interpretation of Imaging in Epilepsy and Epilepsy Surgery

Structural and functional neuroimaging significantly gained importance in diagnosis and treatment of patients with epilepsy over the last decade. Modern epileptology and epilepsy surgery are unthinkable without imaging. Furthermore, many lines of research in clinical epilepsy and cognitive neurosciences rely on neuroimaging methods.

Since 2015, the SuSIE offers state-of-the-art lectures and hands-on-training on the topics:

  • Finding Epileptogenic Lesions (Visual MRI Analysis and MRI Postprocessing)
  • Functional Imaging (PET, SPECT, fMRI, Connectivity Analysis, EEG/MEG Source Analysis)
  • Language lateralization and localization
  • Decision Making in Pediatric and Adult Epilepsy Surgery after non-invasive and invasive presurgical work-up SEEG planning and interpretation

Course evaluations have been excellent throughout the years. In addition, the SuSIE is a place of intense communication, networking and exchange of experience between beginners and experienced colleagues from all over the world. In 2019, we had participants from 25 countries in 5 continents. Join the 6th edition of our Summer School!

Special SuSIE Highlights

At this year’s SuSIE we have the pleasure and honor to present two well reputed key note speakers:

  • Prof. Alexander Radbruch Wednesday, 16.9.2020, 19:00h: Prof. Alexander Radbruch, Neuroradiologist, Essen, Germany, is going to give a talk on one of the hottest current topics in imaging: “How AI changes everything in radiology!?“.
     
     
  • Prof. Helen Cross Thursday, 17.9.2020, 19:00h: Prof. Helen Cross, Chair of Childhood Epilepsy and Head of the Developmental Neuroscience Programme at UCL-Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, is going to present a talk on “The earlier – the better? Epilepsy Surgery in Children”.
     
     

The Dinner with key note lecture is included in the SuSIE fee, but AMIE-participants and guests are welcome, too (50€ per person)

Combine AMIE & SuSIE

In contrast to the SuSIE which focuses on teaching, the AMIE (Annual meeting on Imaging in Epilepsy, Epilepsy Surgery, Epilepsy Research and Cognitive Neurosciences,) which takes place in the two days before the SuSIE (14.-16.9.2020) at the same hotel is a scientific and sponsor orientated event. The AMIE offers:

  • numerous scientific workshops (see AMIE & SuSIE program),
  • an exhibition of commercial providers of imaging solutions, EEG/MEG hard- and software, and equipment for stereotactic neurosurgery as well as
  • hands-on application workshops by companies offering products around structural and functional neuroimaging and stereotactic neurosurgery.

Whereas the SuSIE is built as a complete event, workshops at the AMIE can be booked individually.

More details on the AMIE and SuSIE 2020 booking options will be available on this homepage from March 2020.
