A study shows that this novel MRI marker suggests a high likelihood of FCD type IIB, is highly concordant with the seizure onset zone and is significantly associated with seizure freedom when resected.
A leading neuroradiologist shares insights from six years of using this advanced imaging technology for research and clinical purposes in conditions from multiple sclerosis to brain tumor.
The largest study of 7T MRI in this setting finds that it revealed subtle focal cortical dysplasia in nearly half of patients with no detectable lesions on 3T MRI. Plus, resection of these lesions was highly associated with seizure freedom.
By extending traditional EEG-fMRI methods to 7T MRI, we’re markedly increasing detection sensitivity and temporal resolution of spikes to enable successful resection of the epileptogenic zone.

Roughly 40 percent of epilepsy surgery candidates have MRI-negative lesions. Here’s how we’re using computer-assisted methods to pull out information not easily seen on visual analysis.
We know lithium can help patients with bipolar disorder, but exactly how? A new study is exploring changes in the brain with 7T MRI and at the molecular level to gain insights.
