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.
How 7T MRI Is Shaping the Care of Diverse Neurological Conditions (Podcast)
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.
7T MRI Adds Critical Information for Epilepsy Presurgical Evaluation
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.
Detecting Epileptogenic Spikes Using Ultrafast 7T EEG-fMRI with 3D Paradigm Free Mapping
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.

Making the Most of Brain MRI Through Computer-Assisted Morphometric Assessment
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.
NIH Grant Fuels Study of Mechanisms Behind Lithium’s Bipolar Benefits
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.
