Education Advances: Pearls and Pitfalls in Epilepsy Imaging
America/Chicago UTC -5
Neuroimaging in epilepsy is a challenging, yet common, task encountered by radiologists. Nevertheless, detection of a causative abnormality portends a potential 3x increase in seizure freedom versus cases without a detectable imaging finding. In this discussion, we will review commonly encountered causes of epilepsy and provide some of the more common misses that we encounter upon review at a high-volume, multidisciplinary epilepsy clinic.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will have strategies to:
• Understand the value in optimal imaging protocols and be familiar with common imaging techniques
• Develop a robust search pattern to identify commonly encountered causes of epilepsy
• Understand the imaging patterns associated with autoimmune epilepsy
