MRI has revolutionized the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, and no evaluation of a patient suspected of harbouring this dreaded disease is complete without it. Mesial temporal sclerosis Mesial temporal sclerosis, the most common cause of complex partial seizures, is better detected by MRI than CT (Franceschi et al. 1989). On MR scanning, mesial temporal sclerosis is apparent with atrophy, best seen on Tl-weighted scans, and, on T2-weigh ted scans, increased signal intensity in the same area: importantly, these changes are generally best seen on coronal images (Berkovic et al.
1987), inactive plaques appear as areas of decreased signal intensity on Tl-weighted scans, and increased signal intensity on T2-weighted scans; active plaques demonstrate gadolinium enhancement. Serial MR scanning (Grossman et al. 1988; Guttmann et al. 1995; Thompson et al. 1992) may be used to follow the progress of the disease and may indeed reveal clinically 'silent' lesions. Furthermore, recently activated plaques may be detected by gadolinium enhancement before there is any clinical evidence of their presence (Kermode et al.
Their electrical potential is negative with regard to the normal baseline. Furthermore, most of these discharges cover a fairly wide area: although the discharge may at times be 'seen' under but one elctrode, it occurs in most cases over a wider area, subtending two or more adjacent electrodes. The electrical activity itself may be visualized as a landscape, which may in turn contain various topographic features: gently rolling electrical hills and valleys represent the normal EEC background, whereas deep chasms can be likened to epileptiform discharges plunging down from the background.
