Cranial computerized tomography (CCT) is a significant advance in diagnosis, especially of complex partial seizures (CPS). However, an investigation of our own, using CCT in 113 patients (2) did not show a circumscribed result which could be connected with the CPS in 59.3%. Magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI) has raised the hope that further Information can be obtained in these patients.
