Evolution of Brain Glucose Metabolic Abnormalities in Children With Epilepsy and SCN1A Gene Variants.
(Kumar et al. 2018) Similar to the last study reviewed, the authors examined the fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scans of 3 patients with refractory epilepsy and SCN1A mutations. (Recall, FDG-PET scans provide images of the rate at which glucose is utilized by brain tissue.) However, in this study, the patients were imaged at least [...]
