Imaging Biomarkers in Epilepsy Hardback
Edited by Andrea Bernasconi, Neda Bernasconi, Matthias Koepp
Epilepsy is a prevalent and serious neurological disorder.
This vital textbook addresses the role of neuroimaging as a unique tool to provide in vivo biomarkers aimed at furthering our understanding of causes and consequences of epilepsy in a day-to-day clinical context.
Unique in its approach, this translational book presents a critical appraisal of advanced pre-clinical biomarkers that allows capturing epileptogenesis at molecular, cellular, and neuronal system levels.
The book is divided into four sections. Part I includes a series of chapters focused on imaging of early disease stages.
Part II discusses lesion detection and network analysis methods.
Part III focuses on imaging methods used to predict response to antiepileptic drugs and surgery.
Finally, Part IV presents imaging techniques used to evaluate disease consequence.
