Clinical Study

Cerebral Tissue Oximetry In Patients With Epileptic Seizures

Posted Date: Oct 24, 2014

  • Investigator: Brian Moseley
  • Co-Investigator: Lucy Mendoza
  • Specialties:
  • Type of Study: Observational/Survey

The purpose of this research study is to determine whether convulsive seizures (generalized tonic clonic or “grand mal” seizures) are associated with changes in the amount of blood delivered to the brain (brain blood flow). The study will also look at whether specific changes in brain blood flow during and after seizures are associated with brief memory problems that some patients may experience after seizures. The information gained from this study may help us to better understand how seizure related changes in brain blood flow relate to the risks associated with seizures. The information may also be used to develop better devices to measure blood flow in brain tissue.
