Children could receive epilepsy surgery in landmark study

Media release

13 February 2017

New technology offers new hope for children with drug-resistant epilepsy

  • 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.
