Do your patient’s EEGs show epileptiform discharges? How often do they occur? Get a reliable answer to these important questions within minutes.
Detecting spikes is an important step in both epilepsy diagnosis and pre-surgical workup. Counting spikes by hand is extremely time consuming. More patients within tighter budgets often prohibit a thorough analysis. EpiSpike will help you to speed up this process. EpiSpike scans through the data and shows you the results on one screen. You can then easily review all the detected spikes. It's fast, it's easy, it's reliable.
EpiSpike detects spikes and sharp waves with a very high sensitivity combined with a very high specificity. The detections are shown clustered on a timeline and in marker lists together with their EEGs. This enables you to quickly review all the spikes in your recording.
EpiSpike clusters the detected spikes by their localization and shows the detections over all electrodes on a timeline. This enables you to get a good overview where and when spikes occurred. You may zoom in and out from 5min up to 24h. For each cluster, you can see the average spike or all the EEGs overlapped.
Select the way you prefer to work: with the marker lists or on the timeline, with the mouse or the keyboard. The EEG is always shown automatically. Select the time intervall you want to focus on and save even more time. You may stop your review anytime and continue later, your results are automatically saved.
You would like to know how often the spikes occurred in a specific period of time? EpiSpike counts the spikes for each cluster for any time intervall you may define. An overall statistics is also shown to provide you with an easy left/right comparison.
