Detailed Imaging and Surgical Assessment
Program Length: 2 hrs 13 min
The activity will review current imaging technologies and new advances in imaging and their use in patients with epilepsy with particular focus on those undergoing surgical evaluation. Correlative studies of localizing techniques will be critically reviewed. The prognostic value of these techniques for outcome will also be a point of review.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:Recognize the pathologic features in children with epilepsy and understand how to use different imaging techniques to unravel pathologic findings Use fMRI and fMRI-EEG and learn how to identify epileptogenic networks Recognize the impact of each PET technique on the presurgical data Define role of MSI on the presurgical investigation.
Neurologists, nurses, neurosurgeons, pediatric neurologists and fellows.
