Abstract: The ability to identify an intracranial abnormality in an epileptic patient has obvious implications for therapy. Three-dimensional reconstructions of hippocampal and cortical volume can now be obtained by computer processing of MR images. From such reconstructions, differences in the distribution of gray and white matter and in the fractal dimension or degree of compexity of white matter surfaces can be correlated with clinical observations. Other new MR techniques further improve detection of abnormalities and promise to provide more detailed structural as well as functional information.
