SOFTWARE FOCUSDET

An accurate localization of epileptogenic the focus in patients with intractable focal seizures is essential to ensure success in surgical treatment.

The SISCOM (Subtraction Ictal SPECT Co of-registered to MRI) methodology is one of the techniques used to localize the epileptogenic focus that combines functional information from ictal and interictal SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) studies with anatomical information from an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging).

The SISCOM Analysis plu-gin of FocusDET is a new research-oriented tool to perform SISCOM methodology in a user friendly interface in a unique environment.

FocusDET has been developed by using the GIMIAS framework (www.gimias.org) within an intramural CIBER-BBN project, the Virtual Physiological Human Toolkit (VPHTK). The following groups participated in the development of FocusDET: 1) Biomedical Imaging Group at the Universitat de Barcelona (GIB-UB), 2) Biomedical Imaging Technology at Universidad Politecnica de Madridd (BIT-UPM) and 3) Computational Imaging and Simulation Technology in Biomedicine at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (CISTIB-UPF).

4. Quick method to assess if different isolates of M. Tuberculosis have the same clone origin and if they are resistant to rifampicin and isoniazid

Based in IS6110 (Gold standard), offers quick results (few hours), is automated, standardized and reproducible. If widely adopted, this technology would allow better control of TB. The technology can be used to identify strains resistant to rifampicin and isoniazid and can be extended to other bacteria with specific IS.

7. Test for predicting blood pressure response to continuous positive air pressure treatment (CPAP) in patients with resistant hypertension

A test based in a set of miRNAs which expression in plasma can predict blood pressure response to CPAP treatment for patients with resistant hypertension that do not respond to any other treatment. This method can identify, with high sensitivity and specific values, patients that can positively benefit from CPAP treatment for their resistant hypertension.

 8. High reliability prediction of fluid/vascular responses and estimation of pleural pressure changes in patients

The non-invasive method allows the prediction of patient's response to intravenous administration of fluid or to evaluate the state of arterial tone or the change of pleural pressure due to respiration. It allows the optimization of hemodynamic monitoring. This evaluation can be carried out in patients under mechanical ventilation or in punctual monitoring, even in patients with cardiac or respiratory arrhythmias.

 9. Biomarkers to identify grades of asthma severity in patients.

This set of biomarkers allows the identification of patients at risk of developing asthma, as well as the degree to which it occurs in asthmatic individuals. This can be done regardless of the asthmatic endotype and the inflammatory pathway involved. The method offers high reliability in blood samples. The test allows a very objective diagnosis / prognosis independently of patients and professionals expertise helping in treatment decisions.
