Camping Out in the Hippocampus: Imaging Spectrum of Etiologies That Affect the Hippocampi and Tips for Honing the Differential Diagnosis
Learning Objectives: To (1) review the normal hippocampal anatomy, function, and development; (2) recognize common hippocampal pathologies by reviewing original cases that illustrate the spectrum of hippocampal disease; and (3) become aware of the potential pitfalls, variants, and developmental anomalies related to the hippocampus that may confound evaluation for pathology.
