Abstract

The interest of scientific community on brain activities and issues are well-known, especially for neuro-detection of variety of impairments that affect cerebral areas. Various techniques and methods have been using to characterize and to try to understand brain activities for many purposes. Epilepsy, one of them, is a topic of great impact in brain research as well as in Alzheimer issues. Thanks to the development of new biomedical instrumentation it is possible to use appropriate techniques to diagnose the specific pathology. DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) is one of the ultimate technique to have a comprehensive approach to brain activities. This interdisciplinary research highlights the use of DTI to determine preliminarily the ROI (Region Of Interest) for patients with suspected cases of epilepsy. A specific algorithm has been developed to trace out the ROI and the fibers.
