An estimated 20% to 40% of epilepsy surgery candidates will have no identifiable etiological lesion detected on a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, and recent reports suggest that the proportion of such MRI-negative patients is growing. Hence, MRI-Negative Epilepsy: Evaluation and Surgical Management tackles a timely topic because there is a pressing need to establish the most effective approaches to diagnosis and treatment in this patient population. The book is divided into 21 chapters devoted to the critical review of diagnostic procedures and surgical techniques for MRI-negative focal epilepsy.
