Imaging of Pediatric Epilepsy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Modern neuroimaging techniques have improved the ability to detect underlying structural abnormalities in children with epilepsy. Using imaging to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy requires an understanding of congenital, neoplastic, acquired, and idiopathic brain abnormalities that may be encountered, as well as an appreciation for the imaging techniques themselves to help understand the strengths, weaknesses, and risks of each modality. This chapter describes the roles of the various imaging modalities, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), advanced MR techniques, nuclear medicine, and radiography. Application of these techniques in identifying certain lesions and abnormalities associated with seizures is also considered.
