E. Watanabe, H. Yokota & K. Oguro
For drug resistant epilepsy, an accurate diagnosis of the epileptogenic focus is inevitable in order to achieve a good outcome in a surgical intervention. For this purpose, functional mapping techniques such as SPECT and PET are usually applied before surgery. We developed and investigated the feasibility[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
