Abstract

Seizures in the intensive care unit patient can be due to a known neurological disease, or a new intracranial pathology. We discuss the general indications and the role of imaging in these clinical scenarios, and describe selected conditions characteristically presenting with seizures. Transient post-ictal imaging changes are also described as a potential source of interpretation error.
