Objective: To determine the accuracy of hippocampal quantitative (volumetric) assessment in diagnosing hippocampal atrophy in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy by comparing it with qualitative (visual) assessment on MRI. Materials and Methods: Setting: Department of Radiology, Allied Hospital, Faisalabad. Duration: Minimum 6 months after the approval of my synopsis. Study Design: Cross sectional. Conclusion: We can conclude that MRI based hippocampal volumetric assessment is a valuable tool
