N-acetylaspartate and epilepsy.

Abstract

Proton magnetic resonance spectra include signals from N-acetylaspartate, creatine + phosphocreatine, and choline-containing compounds. Abnormalities in these signals can be used in the assessment of patients with intractable epilepsy. In particular, they provide a means of identifying metabolic abnormalities within the temporal lobes, detecting bilateral… (More)
