Caption: Epileptic brain. Combined cross-sectional computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans of the head of a 50-year-old patient with epilepsy. This image was taken at the level of the eyes and nose, and the front of the head is at top. Epilepsy is abnormal chaotic electrical activity in the brain resulting in seizures, hallucinations or emotional outbursts. The epilepsy is seen here as an extended region of orange in the right side of the brain. The type of PET scan used here is 2-18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography.
