Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Addresses all aspects of functional imaging in diagnosis and management of epilepsy, describing the latest tools and techniques and discussing their roles and limitations. Chapters are arranged in sections on single-photon emission computed tomography in the epilepsies, positron emission tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, and integrated functional neuroimaging applications. Although the output of most techniques covered is brain images, this work emphasizes that primary data sets contain a wealth of information that increasingly sophisticated analysis techniques are beginning to unveil. Includes summary chapters. Material originated at the fall 1998 International Symposium of Functional Neuroimaging in the Epilepsies. Henry teaches neurology at Emory University. Annotation c.
