Association of unilateral focal cortical metabolic defects with ipsilateral subcortical “hypometabolism” and between left and right sided subcortical “hypometabolism” in patients without unilateral focal cortical patients

Lentiform nucleiCaudate nucleiThalami
Unilateral cortical hypometabolism:
 Ipsilateral hypometabolism679
 Contralateral hypometabolism542
 No asymmetry000
No unilateral cortical metabolic defects:
 Left sided hypometabolism11109
 Right sided hypometabolism7911
 No asymmetry210
  • The difference between ipsilateral and cantralateral thalamic hypometabolism was not significant (see text).
