Comparison of positron emission tomography, xenon CT and single photon emission CT in infants with intractable seizures
Ten infants with intractable seizures were examined with fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography, xenon CT and HMPAO single photon emission computed tomography and with anatomical CT and MRI. Three were abnormal anatomically. In these three cases and in one anatomically normal case all the functional studies were abnormal. Functional imaging was expected to yield more information in the anatomically normal child.
