BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Amygdalar and hippocampal volume measurements indicate a right-greater-than-left asymmetry for right-handed normal participants in most studies. The purpose of this study was to compare amygdalar and hippocampal volume ratios between right- and left-handed participants. METHODS Amygdalar and hippocampal volume measurements were(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is mounting evidence of extratemporal volume changes associated with medically refractory temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). This MR imaging study aimed to characterize volume changes in subcortical structures and cerebellar hemispheres with respect to lateralization of the seizure focus, onset and duration of epilepsy, and frequency(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the value of same day blood flow PET in both the identification of the language dominant hemisphere and in the lateralization of the epileptic focus in patients who were preoperatively evaluated for complex partial seizures. METHODS The charts of 24 patients who had temporal lobectomies for seizures were(More)
