MR imaging of epilepsy: strategies for successful interpretation

, : MR imaging of epilepsy: strategies for successful interpretation. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics of North America 14(2): 225-247

MR imaging plays a pivotal role in the evaluation of patients with epilepsy. With its high spatial resolution, excellent inherent soft tissue contrast, multiplanar imaging capability, and lack of ionizing radiation, MR imaging has emerged as a versatile diagnostic tool in the evaluation of patients with epilepsy. MR imaging not only identifies specific epileptogenic substrates but also determines specific treatment and predicts prognosis. Employing appropriate imaging protocols and reviewing the images in a systematic manner helps in the identification of subtle epileptogenic structural abnormalities. With future improvements in software, hardware, and post-processing methods, MR imaging should be able to throw more light on epileptogenesis and help physicians to better understand its structural basis.

We have previously shown that fetal rat brain cells, preneuronal (PC12) and hepatocyte (CWSV-1) cells undergo apoptosis during choline deficiency (CD). The PC12 and epithelial cell culture models were used to determine the molecular mechanism by w...

The present study showed CCR7, CCR8, CCR9 and CCR10 in the normal Swiss mouse hippocampus at both protein and mRNA levels. CCR7, CCR9 and CCR10 were mainly localized in hippocampal principal cells and some interneurons. CCR9 was also found in the...
