- New research has found subtle epileptic brain abnormalities on MRI scans can be automatically detected in children.
- Young Epilepsy hails research as ‘hugely significant’ for paediatric neurology.
- These brain abnormalities can be difficult for trained radiologists to see.
- This advance could lead to more children with drug-resistant epilepsy being offered the option of surgery.
