Introduction: Stereotactic electroencephalography (SEEG) has emerged as the preferred modality for intracranial monitoring in drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE) patients being evaluated for neurosurgery. After implantation of SEEG electrodes, it is important to determine the neuroanatomic locations of electrode contacts (ECs), to localize ictal onset and propagation, and integrate functional information to facilitate surgical decisions. Although there are tools for coregistration of preoperative MRI and postoperative CT scans, identification, sorting, and labeling of SEEG ECs is often performed manually, which is resource intensive.
