MRI Assessment of seizures in pediatric age group patients at a tertiary education institution

Dr. Sonali Vijay Kimmatkar and Dr. Vempalli Aftab
Background: Patients with seizures frequently present to the emergency room. Involuntary deficits in motor, sensory, or autonomic functioning are hallmarks of seizures. Paroxysmal electrical discharges from the brain cause abnormal, excessive neuronal activity, which in turn causes them. Seizures disorders are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children. Neonates have mortality rates between 21 and 24 percent and morbidity rates between 25 and 35 percent.
Methods: The Radiology Division of the Department of Pediatrics, Annaii Medical College and Hospital, Tamil Nadu, India, conducted the current study, which was a prospective hospital-based inquiry. The department of radiodiagnosis carried out the investigation from December 2010 to November 2011. The sample comprised 148 individuals. Every picture was taken using the 1.5 T MRI scanner at Siemens Magnetom Area.
Results and Discussion: We discovered the following percentages from the results that were collected. 0-1 month (33.10%), 1-1 year (27.02%), 1-5 years (8.10%), and 5-15 years (31.75%) are the ranges. 60% of the population was male and 38.18% was female. Infancy rates were 16.32% preterm and 83.67% term. We discovered 34.14% female and 65.85% male new-borns. Preterm birth rates were 62.50% for men and 37.50% for females.
Conclusion: We will know the extent to which MRI correlates with MR spectroscopy and the degree to which it can identify lesions underlying pediatric seizures after our investigation
