Abstract:
Background: Epileptic seizures are a frequently encountered manifestation in the emergency room. Seizures are defined by involuntary disruptions in motor, sensory, or autonomic functioning. They occur because to aberrant and excessive neuronal activity that is caused by sudden bursts of electrical discharges from the brain. Seizure disorders significantly contribute to both illness and death rates in children.
Methods: This study was a hospital-based inquiry conducted in the Department of Radio Diagnosis at Madha Medical College and Research Institute in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The study took place from June 2013 to May 2014 in the Radiodiagnosis department. The sample consisted of 148 individuals. The Siemens Magnetom Area's 1.5 T MRI equipment was utilized to obtain each image.
Result: Based on the acquired outcomes, we have identified the subsequent percentages. The distribution of age groups is as follows: 0-1 month (33.10%), 1 month to 1 year (27.02%), 1 year to 5 years (8.10%), and 5 to 15 years (31.75%). The male population accounted for 60.81 percent, while the female population accounted for 39.18 percent. 83.67% of the infants were born at full term, while 16.32% were born prematurely. We discovered that 65.85% of the neonates were male, while 34.14% were female. The proportion of male preterm births was 62.50%, whereas the proportion of girls was 37.50%.
Conclusion: Upon completion of our experiment, we will ascertain the efficacy of MRI in detecting lesions that underlie pediatric seizures and determine its correlation with MR Spectroscopy.
