OBJECTIVE Intracranial electroencephalography (ICEEG) with chronically implanted electrodes is a costly invasive diagnostic procedure that remains necessary for a large proportion of patients who undergo evaluation for epilepsy surgery. This study was designed to evaluate whether magnetic source imaging (MSI), a noninvasive test based on(More)
The external validity of a noninvasive language mapping protocol with magnetoencephalography (MEG) has been established through direct comparisons with invasive functional mapping techniques. This study examines the test-retest and interrater reliability of this protocol under realistic testing conditions in 21 epilepsy surgery candidates. Brain activation(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess whether patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) could be managed as outpatients after early discharge from hospital using low molecular weight heparin instead of remaining as in-patients until effective oral anticoagulation was achieved. Phase 1 of the study identified criteria for the safe discharge of selected(More)
BACKGROUND Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) represents about 20% of primary lung tumours and the costs associated with the management of SCLC can be significant. The main objective of this study was to obtain information on current patterns of care and associated resource use and costs for patients with SCLC from initial diagnosis and treatment phase,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the validity of magnetic source imaging (MSI) to localize seizure-onset zone using 3D analysis of pre-operative MSI source imaging coregistered to post-resection MRI following neocortical epilepsy surgery. METHODS Twenty-two children who had MSI and epilepsy surgery were studied (median age=11 years, 1 year 2 months-22 years).(More)
While insulin remains the mainstay of managing type 1 diabetes, much has changed over the last 15 years. These changes should help in managing patients with type 1 diabetes during the perioperative period. More flexible insulin therapy has three components: (1) basal, (2) prandial and (3) corrective. Many patients, particularly younger patients, are using(More)

The purpose of this investigation was to determine how family roles changed after spinal cord injury of a child or spouse. Parental and spousal roles--including provider, child care and socialization, housekeeper, sexual, recreational, therapeutic, and kinship roles--were studied. Results indicated that, overall, families that experienced spinal cord injury(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine the pattern of mesial temporal lobe activity in patients with left mesial temporal sclerosis (LMTS) and normal control subjects during a verbal memory task using magnetoencephalography. Six LMTS patients and seven normal control subjects performed a word recognition task while event-related neuromagnetic responses(More)
