The key to successful epilepsy surgery is accurate localisation of the epileptogenic zone, yet conventional methods have a number of limitations. To overcome these limitations, we propose a new method: virtual intracranial electroencephalography (ViEEG) technique, which combines the advantages of magnetoencephalography (MEG) and intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG). By using the electromagnetic signals of epileptic patients in the interictal period, we successfully reconstructed the virtual intracranial EEG signals and predicted the location of the epileptogenic zone. The experimental results show that the virtual intracranial EEG signal can effectively predict the epileptogenic zone with high accuracy. This method not only reduces the difficulty of data acquisition and clinical workload, but also improves the success rate of surgery. Therefore, ViEEG technology is expected to become an important auxiliary tool in epilepsy surgery and provide more accurate treatment for patients.
