Neuroimaging in Epilepsy: Principles & Practice / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:

·A practical and well-illustrated text on the techniques and procedures used in imaging in patients with epilepsy
· There exists no other textbook devoted solely to this topic
The value of neuroimaging in patients with seizures is great. Patients with partial or focal (restricted to a certain portion of the brain) require CT or MRI scans to determine whether a brain lesion is associated with the epilepsy; PET scans help to elucidate some of the metabolic changes that occur during seizures. Evaluation and management of patients with epilepsy now routinely incorporate imaging techniques, whether or not the patient undergoes surgery.
Drs. Cascino and Jack have edited a highly illustrated and authoritative text on the topic. They have enlisted internationally known authors from the US, Canada, England, and Australia. In addition, the book is being published under the auspices of the Mayo Foundation.
