In this E-Poster the authors review the use of anatomical MRI, fMRI, Voxel Based Morphometry (VBM) and curvilinear reformatting in the diagnosis of the epileptogenic lesion and surgical planning. The imaging findings of several neuropathologic substrates of epilepsy are presented. Language lateralization by means of fMRI, and the application of memory, motor and visual paradigms are illustrated with clinical cases. Finally, post-processing based techniques like VBM applied to single subjects, and curvilinear reformatting of the brain are introduced.
