These proton ‘magnets’ are normally arrayed in random directions, but if a very strong external magnetic field is applied, they will all align themselves parallel to the external magnetic field. In such a situation, if a radio pulse of appropriate frequency is fired at the protons, they will absorb this energy, with the result that they begin to spin with an eccentric axis, no longer in parallel alignment to the external magnetic field. qxd 3/10/08 18 9:33 AM Page 18 Diagnostic assessment earlier radio pulse.

By the middle of the twentieth century, the EEG had become very important in the diagnosis of such intracranial lesions as tumors but, with the advent of CT and MRI the indications for electroencephalography have changed, and most EEGs are currently obtained in the course of the diagnosis or management of seizures or epilepsy and in the evaluation of delirium. , hyperventilation), normal variants, and the various artifacts that may mimic pathologic abnormalities. As with any other diagnostic test, electroencephalography must be properly performed to yield the most useful data (Epstein et al.

These interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs) are paroxysmal transients that ‘shoot’ out from the background rhythm (Pedley 1980).
