“Magnetic Resonance Imaging Negative Positron Emission Tomography Positive” Temporal Lobe Epilepsy: FDG-PET Pattern Differs from Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Abstract

Some patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) lack evidence of hippocampal sclerosis (HS) on MRI (HS-ve). We hypothesized that this group would have a different pattern of 2-deoxy-2-[F-18]fluoro-d-glucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET) hypometabolism than typical mesial TLE/HS patients with evidence of hippocampal atrophy on magnetic resonance… (More)
