7 Tesla MRI in Epilepsy-Extra-large Size may matter soon
In a recent online article in Radiology -- "Ultrahigh-field-strength MR imaging permitted detection of selectively greater Ammon horn atrophy in patients with Temporal lobe epilepsy and hippocampal sclerosis. Paucity of digitations is a deformity of the hippocampal head that was detected independent of hippocampal atrophy in patients with mesial TLE"
Looks like soon 7-Tesla may become the new gold standard for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy.
