  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of her brain at that time revealed minimal small vessel ischemic disease.[consultant360.com] Her electroencephalogram (EEG) showed moderate, diffuse, nonspecific abnormalities, and rare left temporal sharp waves, which appeared epileptiform in character.[consultant360.com]

  • Demyelinating Disease

    Abstract Three young children with the Schilder variant of multiple sclerosis were seen within a 3-year period at our hospital. The diagnosis was made on the basis of the typical (but not pathognomonic) clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings after eliminating other demyelinating and post-infectious[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Spinal neurodegeneration is an important determinant of disability progression in patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Advanced imaging techniques, such as single-voxel (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy and q-space imaging, have increased pathological specificity for neurodegeneration, but are[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
