Periictal diffusion-weighted imaging in a case of lesional epilepsy.


PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) has been used for the early diagnosis of acute ischemic lesions in humans and in animal models of focal status epilepticus. We hypothesized that DWI may be a sensitive, noninvasive tool for the localization of the epileptogenic area during the periictal period. METHODS A periictal DWI study was performed on a 35… (More)
