Multimodal MRI and PET periictal imaging in a patient with multifocal seizures

Multimodal MRI and PET periictal imaging in a patient with multifocal seizures
(Upper panel) 18FDG-PET images from patient described in Figure 2 obtained on day 25 showing multiple focal areas of hypermetabolism.
(Middle panel) FLAIR images obtained on day 28.
(Lower panel) Co-registration showing co-localization of areas of hypermetabolism and areas with FLAIR abnormalities. EEG recording (not shown) demonstrated a similar localization of ictal activity involving right frontal pole and left central region.
MRI: magnetic resonance imaging; PET: positron emission tomography; FDG: fluorodeoxyglucose; FLAIR: fluid-attenuated inversion recovery; EEG: electroencephalogram.
