Three-T MRI enhances diagnosis of focal epilepsy

November 1, 2008 Diagnostic Imaging. Vol. 30 No. 11 Three-T MRI enhances diagnosis of focal epilepsy A recent study at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland has confirmed that 3T MR imaging improves on 1.5T MRI for detecting and characterizing struc-tural brain abnormalities in patients with focal epilepsy.

An accurate, one-go MRI exam is thus preferable since insurance companies may not pay for a second one, according to sen-ior investigator Dr. Bronwyn E. Hamilton.
