PURPOSE Reports conflict on the relation of glucose metabolism to hippocampal volume in temporal lobe foci. Previous studies usually have used side-side ratios rather than regional metabolic rates. METHODS We measured hippocampal volume and glucose metabolism in 37 patients with temporal epileptogenic zones identified by ictal video-EEG telemetry. Metabolic rates were normalized to global brain mean. RESULTS Both 18-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose-PET and volumetric MRI lateralized the epileptic… CONTINUE READING
