To investigate the biological and functional significance of cerebral asymmetries, we measured lateral differences of the frontal and occipital poles on computed tomographic scans of 66 adult outpatients with no diagnosed abnormalities. In addition to confirming the greater average sizes of the right frontal and left occipital poles, we found a significant(More)
PURPOSE This work demonstrates the feasibility of planned ictal positron emission tomography (PET) with [18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose (FDG) for localization of epileptic activity in patients with frequent partial seizures of extratemporal origin. METHODS Ictal PET imaging was performed in four patients (two men and two women, ages 28-61) with continuous or(More)
