Abstract

Patients with seizures represent a challenging clinical population both in pediatrics and adults. Accurate diagnosis of the cause of a seizure is important in choosing an effective treatment modality, surgical planning, predicting a prognosis, and follow-up. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging using a dedicated epilepsy protocol plays a key role in the workup of these patients. Additional MR techniques such as T2 relaxometry and MR spectroscopy show a promising role to arrive at a final diagnosis. The spectrum of epileptogenic causes is broad. Radiologists and physicians need to be updated and require a patterned approach in light of clinical history and electroencephalogram findings to arrive at a reasonable differential diagnosis. This pictorial essay aims to review a few of the common and uncommon causes of seizures and their imaging features.
