Perhaps the most important achievements in the field of epileptology in the past two decades have been in the neuroimaging and genetic breakthroughs as applied to patients with epilepsy. Indeed, neuroimaging has become a vital part in the study of epilepsy, affecting broad aspects of thedisorder ranging from diagnosis and classification to treatment and prognosis. Neuroimaging in epilepsy encompasses many different approaches that have reached various levels of expertise across epilepsy centers worldwide. This book discusses every imaging modality used to gather information onepilepsy. Each technique is described by world experts and epilespy centers worldwide.
Dr. Harry Chugani is a pediatric neurologist who has pioneered the applications of PET scanning in children. He has developed new approaches using PET to evaluate patients with epilepsy, including epilepsy surgery. His research on infantile spasms and tuberous sclerosis has had significant impact on new treatment strategies in these ...
