The relevance of EEG and MRI abnormalities in children with epilepsy
In the initial assessment of children with new-onset seizures, the suggestion that electroencephalography (EEG) should be standard and that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) should be optional. A normal EEG means I do not have epilepsy. Many patients with epilepsy have a normal EEG between attacks. Many people without seizures have mild abnormalities on EEG. Epilepsy is a clinical diagnosis, that is, made on the basis of history and examination.
