How is polymicrogyria diagnosed?

The diagnosis of polymicrogyria is made by imaging brain structures using MRI. Typical findings include areas of the cerebral cortex with a complex set of small gyri that appear fused to each other and separated by shallow sulci. These findings may be isolated to one side of the brain (unilateral) or may involve both sides of the brain (bilateral).
