AbstractBackground: Seizures are a very common presentation in the emergency department. Seizures are characterised by involuntary impairments in motor, sensory, or autonomic functioning. They are brought on by abnormal, excessive neuronal activity that is triggered by paroxysmal electrical discharges from the brain. In children, seizure disorders are a prominent contributor to both morbidity and mortality. Mortality rates in neonates range from 21 to 24 percent, while morbidity rates range from 25 to 35 percent.
Material and Methods: The current study was a prospective hospital-based investigation carried out in the Radiology Division of S.V.S. Medical College and Hospital in Mahabubnagar, Telangana, India. The investigation was conducted between September 2019 and August 2022 in the department of Radiodiagnosis. 148 people made up the sample. Siemens Magnetom Area's 1.5 T MRI equipment was used to capture every image.
