Abstract

Detecting focal abnormalities in MRI examinations of children with epilepsy can be a challenging task given the frequently subtle appearance of cortical dysplasia, mesial temporal sclerosis and similar lesions. In this report, we demonstrate the utility of double inversion recovery MRI in the detection of paediatric epileptogenic abnormalities, promoted primarily by increased lesion conspicuity due to complementary suppression of both cerebrospinal fluid and normal white matter signal.
