    Course Description
    Epilepsy is a common neurologic disorder marked by sudden and recurrent seizure episodes. Multiple etiologies have been proposed, based on a variety of genetic, structural, metabolic, or unknown factors. Neuroimaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are crucial to confirming a diagnosis of epilepsy and identifying possible causes. MRI is also essential in capturing the presence and location of structural lesions and the suitability of patients for possible surgical management. Current clinical guidelines endorse the use of MRI early in the treatment and during follow-up of every epilepsy patient. New technologic advances, coupled with breakthroughs in sequencing strategies and postprocessing algorithms, have greatly enhanced the performance of MRI in a variety of clinical settings. Although this emerging body of research needs to be further validated in well-controlled clinical studies, the provocative findings have already changed our understanding and perception of epilepsy and the most effective means of evaluating and treating it.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading this article, the participant should be able to:

    • Describe the role of MRI in the diagnosis, management, and treatment decision-making for patients with epilepsy.
    • Summarize the different imaging approaches used in unexpected or uncommon symptomatic presentations.
    • Appraise the current state of research into new technologies and their application in clinical settings.
