Subcortical [f]fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in lesional epilepsy in patients with intracranial tumour

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We hypothesized that in patients with intracerebral tumours a subcortical metabolical shift may be present when the underlying pathology can, itself, be the epileptogenic focus. We also assumed that by studying the alterations in glucose metabolism beyond the tumour's borders we could identify a modulator area.
