OBJECTIVE To evaluate an automated seizure detection (ASD) algorithm in EEGs with periodic and other challenging patterns. METHODS Selected EEGs recorded in patients over 1year old were classified into four groups: A. Periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) with intermixed electrical seizures. B. PLEDs without seizures. C. Electrical seizures(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of ictal electroencephalography (EEG)-combined functional magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI) (EEG-fMRI) in localizing epileptogenic zone in refractory neocortical focal epilepsy. METHODS From the EEG-fMRI database of our institution including 62 adult patients, 14 (age 18-46 years) experienced some ictal event during the(More)
INTRODUCTION Electroencephalography (EEG) has a central role in the outcome prognostication in subjects with anoxic/hypoxic encephalopathy following a cardiac arrest (CA). Continuous EEG monitoring (cEEG) has been consistently developed and studied; however, its yield as compared to repeated standard EEG (sEEG) is unknown. METHODS We studied a prospective(More)
INTRODUCTION The widespread application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has brought with it an increase in the detection of alterations in the white matter of the central nervous system. AIM. To investigate the evolution of patients with no previous neurological symptoms, but in whom MRI findings are highly suggestive of multiple sclerosis (MS). (More)
