Radiologic imaging has been used in the assessment of patients with epilepsy for the past 40 years. During the past years, the development of high-resolution imaging techniques, in particular magnetic resonance imaging, has revolutionized the neuroimaging practice, generating the need to have the latest information inside one cover. This book is written by a team of knowledgeable authors in a style that is easy to read. It mostly avoids equations and mathematical formulas. The references are up-to-date. The authors achieve their goal, which is to summarize the imaging anatomy of the complex temporal lobe/hippocampus, and to present a summary of the imaging findings in various forms of epilepsy.

The book is divided into three main sections. The first section contains an introduction to epilepsy, magnetic resonance, and neuroimaging. The second section discusses the problems in epilepsy as they relate to anatomically defined abnormalities of the brain. The best part of
