Localization of temporal lobe epileptic foci with iodine-123 iododexetimide cholinergic neuroreceptor single-photon emission computed tomography.

Abstract

There is evidence suggesting that muscarinic cholinergic neuroreceptors (mChR) are reduced at seizure foci. Iodine-123 (I-123) iododexetimide (IDEX) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) permits in vivo imaging of mChR. We assessed 23 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) undergoing preoperative assessment. Regions of interest were placed… (More)
