Iím Ruben Kuzniecky from NYU and Iím going to be chairing this symposium on detailed imaging and surgical assessment. Just a few housekeeping notes. Thank you for attending the American Epilepsy Society. Before we begin, we have just a few things to tell you. Please turn off all your cellphones, beepers, anything that can make noise before we start the symposium. This symposium is sponsored by the American Epilepsy Society. This program will be repurposed on the AES website. At this time, I would like to thank all the members of the faculty for participating in this activity and also thank you James J. Riviello and his staff for organizing this meeting. It is a policy of the AES that all faculty participating in CME activities disclose to the program audience any conflicts of interest and those are in your handouts. To obtain your certificates, your CME credits, this is all done online so please visit www.aesnet.org and log in to obtain your credits and please also help us with the pre and post test.
 There are question pages, not cards, in the back of your syllabus and I will appreciate if you write your questions for the last part of the Q&A portion of this program. So I would like to start this program. We started the modern era of neuroimaging about 20 years ago or so when we first started using the MRI to see small lesions that we could not detect and itís been a long way and a very exciting one. We have multiple techniques, new things are added everyday, and itís very hard to keep up with the technological advances and more difficult to apply them to the field of epilepsy. Surgical intervention remains a very important therapeutic modality for many patients with epilepsy and detailed imaging is more and more important in the assessment of patients prior to surgery.
