Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is defined as topical malformations of cortical development and often results in intractable epilepsy. However, many epileptic patients with FCD have not been diagnosed because of the lack of high-quality magnetic resonance imaging. 7T MRI, in comparison with 3T, is assessed in this study to allow better characterization of lesion details and detect previously unrevealed FCD abnormalities. The results of comparison were classified for an accurate and appropriate appraisal.
