The past decade has seen a significant shift in the number of centers performing intracranial electroencephalography from subdural grids and strips to stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG). Unlike grid and strip insertion or other stereotactic procedures in which the cortical surface is visualized, SEEG involves insertion of an electrode through a bolt anchored into the skull. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of SEEG trajectory planning, it often is time-consuming and iterative.
