Arterial spin-labeled magnetic resonance imaging in hyperperfused seizure focus: a case report

J Comput Assist Tomogr. Mar-Apr 2008;32(2):291-2. doi: 10.1097/RCT.0b013e31814cf81f.

Abstract

We present a case of a clinically suspected cerebral infarction that was diagnosed as a seizure focus on pulsed arterial spin labeling. The finding of hyperperfusion with perfusion imaging significantly impacted clinical management of the patient.
