Visual inspection and volumetric analysis of MRIs allow mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS) to be reliably identified in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. The presence of unilateral MTS ipsilateral to the side of habitual seizure onset is an indicator for the prognosis of good outcome after temporal lobe resection. There is evidence to suggest that widespread temporal lobe pathology, leading to atrophy, may be associated with MTS and such abnormal tissue may play an important role in… CONTINUE READING
