Title:
Comparing propofol versus sevoflurane anesthesia for epileptogenic focus detection during positron emission tomography in pediatric patients. 
Abstract:
Fluoro-D-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is a standard procedure for interictal assessment and accurate pre-surgical evaluation of presumed epileptogenic zone localization. Profound sedation or general anesthesia is frequently required to reduce movement artefacts in young or cognitively impaired patients during image acquisition. This study compares the impact of propofol and sevoflurane anesthesia on overall quality of PET images, detectability of a hypometabolic lesion and...    »
