This chapter discusses the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in evaluation of seizure disorders and surgical management of refractory epilepsy. An overview of MRI principles and techniques in detection of epileptogenic abnormalities is presented, with a synopsis of hippocampal sclerosis and other epileptogenic conditions not covered in other chapters. Emphasis is directed towards key concepts pertaining to the scope and indications of MRI in seizure disorders, and integration of structural imaging in the clinical protocol for evaluation and surgical management of epilepsy. The chapter also provides an introduction to advanced applications of MR such as magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), diffusion MRI, and postprocessing methods.
