This digitally enhanced axial (cross sectional) image from a PET scan of a person with long history of partial complex seizures shows hypometabolism in the right (the viewer's left) anterior temporal lobe (the darker area on your left) consistent with mesial temporal sclerosis. This condition is the most common cause of partial complex seizures. Patients with uncontrolled seizures with this condition are often considered for a partial temporal lobectomy operation.
