      <ArticleTitle>Modern Advances in Epilepsy Imaging Used on the Basis of Cost: A Review</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Epilepsy is a chronic neurologic condition that affects social behaviour, health, the economy, and social functioning. Worldwide, an estimated 5 million people are diagnosed with epilepsy each year. More than 50 million people are reportedly affected globally. 49% of epilepsy patients live in low-to middle-income countries; in exceptional situations, this number may reach 139 per 100,000 people. This review provides imaging therapy used for the diagnoses which are compared according to the cost of individual imaging techniques reliable or affordable for the patient. The main tools used to evaluate patients with epilepsy is electroencephalography (EEG), and the functional imaging modalities for epilepsy are positional emission tomography (PET), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), tissue ablation using high-intensity focused ultrasound, deep non-invasive neuromodulation and blood-brain barrier opening using superficial targets, focused ultrasound, magnetoencephalography (MEG), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In the differential diagnosis imaging findings the treatment of epilepsy are significantly better. By comparing the onetime cost of all imaging techniques the three techniques mostly used are computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and electroencephalography (EEG). Patients may easily access and afford these imagining techniques because they are readily available at low cost.</Abstract>
