Abstract
Recently there has been a considerable interest in the use of a somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) for monitoring the functional integrity of the spinal cord during surgery such as spinal scoliosis. This paper describes a monitoring system and signal processing algorithms, which consists of 50 Hz mains filtering and a wavelet signal analyzer. Our system allows fast detection of changes in SEP peak latency, amplitude and signal waveform, which are the main parameters of interest during intra-operative procedures.
