With recent descriptions of the modified hemispherectomies and hemicorticectomy, there has been renewed interest in hemispherectomy for treatment of intractable seizures with hemiparesis. Because long-term outcome remains uncertain, patient selection remains difficult. 99mTc-HmPAO brain SPECT has been a helpful adjunct in the evaluation of epilepsy surgery candidates. We report SPECT scan findings in 7 patients who underwent hemispherectomy and compare these results with scalp EEG findings. Six patients had unilateral SPECT findings and all had a favorable outcome, regardless of surface EEG findings.
