Epilepsy research prize 2018 awarded to Prof. Wiest & Dr. Kiefer

Epilepsy research prize 2018  

For efforts in developing a non-invasive examination method using MRI, the Swiss League Against Epilepsy awarded Prof. Dr. med. Roland Wiest, Dr. Claus Kiefer and Prof. Dr. med. Dr. sc. nat. Kaspar Schindler the epilepsy research prize 2018. The project is entitled "Neuronal current imaging - Klinische Anwendung einer nicht invasiven, MR-basierten Untersuchungsmethode zur Erfassung von lokalen, epilepsie-bezogenen Magnetfeldinhomogenitäten nach erstmaligem epileptischem Anfall". Neuronal current imaging (NCI / P-SIRS) is a new MR-based technique for the direct measurement of changes in the magnetic field associated with epileptic brain activity. This method was developed in Bern and is exclusively applied here.
