Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings and Distribution of the Findings According to the Age Groups in Childhood Epilepsies

This study showed that the most common pathology that caused epilepsy in children was the indication of parenchymal damage. Another common pathology is hippocampal sclerosis and cortical developmental abnormalities. MRI is a non-invasive imaging modality that that does not involve any ionizing radiation and can be used to identify pathologies that lead to epileptic attacks in childhood.


Objective: To retrospectively analyse the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) observations and the distribution of etiological factors according to age groups in cases with MRI examinations for an epilepsy diagnosis.

Methods: The brain MRI of 606 cases from the 0–17 years age group were analysed retrospectively, and the findings were evaluated according to the age group.
