16) are associated with some abnormality in the EEG provided that it is being recorded at the time of the seizure. Also, the EEG is usually abnormal during more restricted types of seizure activity. Rare exceptions are seizure states that originate in deep temporal, mesial, or orbital frontal foci, from which the discharge fails to reach the scalp in sufﬁcient amplitude to be seen against the normal background activity of the EEG, particularly if there is well-developed alpha rhythm. In these cases, extra scalp leads in the anterior frontal and temporal regions (which are the most free of alpha frequencies) may pick up the discharge, especially during sleep.
These abnormalities include seizure discharges, generalized and extreme slowing, deﬁnite slowing with a clear-cut asymmetry or focal slowing or suppression of amplitude, and absence of normal rhythms. Lesser degrees of these abnormalities form a continuum between the undoubtedly abnormal and the completely normal and are of correspondingly minor significance. Findings such as 14- and 6-per-second positive spikes or small sharp waves during sleep, scattered 5- or 6-per-second slowing, minor voltage asymmetries, and persistence of “breakdown” for a few minutes after hyperventilation are interpreted as borderline abnormalities.
An extensive list of devices that have been tested for their ferromagnetic susceptibility and their safety in the MRI machine can be found in the monograph by Shellock, which is updated regularly. There have been instances over the years in which physicians have rushed into the MRI room to assist an acutely ill patient, only to have metal instruments drawn from their pockets and forcibly strike the patient or magnet. Because of the development of cataracts in the fetuses of animals exposed to MRI, there has been hesitation in performing MRI in pregnant patients, especially in the ﬁrst trimester.
