UNLABELLED Ictal SPECT studies are increasingly used to localize seizure foci in children with refractory epilepsy, but few studies have reported on ictal-interictal subtraction images co-registered to MRI at this age. METHODS Twenty-seven children with partial epilepsy (aged 3 mo-18 y) underwent ictal ethyl cysteinate dimer (ECD) SPECT (20 mCi/1.73 m2)(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) the occurrence of clinical systemic signs and biological autoimmune abnormalities, including positive titers of antinuclear antibodies and antiphospholipid antibodies, suggestive of autoimmune diseases that may affect the central nervous system. Also, to compare the clinical and magnetic(More)
A semi-automatic method was developed to determine the anterior (AC) and posterior (PC) commissures on brain single-photon emission tomographic (SPET) perfusion images, and then to draw the proportional anatomical Talairach's grid on each axial SPET image. First, the AC-PC line was defined on SPET images from the linear regression of four internal landmarks(More)
PURPOSE Functional MRI evaluation of the cortical response in treated amblyopic patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Clinical and functional MRI exploration of ten patients, seven men and three women aged from 21 to 59 years, with strabismus management during childhood. Functional evaluations were performed on a 1.5 Tesla MR device, with four monocular(More)
Ictal SPECT is a highly sensitive method to localize the epileptogenic focus in refractory temporal lobe epilepsy in adults. In extratemporal epilepsy, sensitivity can be improved by subtracting interictal from ictal images and superimposing subtraction images on MRI. In children, such a procedure is potentially interesting because most epilepsies are(More)
