To study the influence of interictal spikes on (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), EEG monitoring was performed during PET scanning in 21 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. Asymmetry indices were calculated in the polar, mesial, anterior-lateral, mid-lateral and posterior-lateral temporal region of interests of FDG-PET (PET-AI). 70.7% of spikes were recorded with their maximum at the anterior temporal region (F(7), F(8), FT(9), FT(10)), 29.3% at mid-temporal (T(7… CONTINUE READING
