Brief Answer:
MRI Brain and other blood tests

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com. I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.

Of course, thrombocytes appear to be low in this report, so must be repeated.
However, as a part of seizure evaluation, other blood tests including blood sugar, serum electrolytes, liver and kidney function tests and serum calcium must be done.
Along with, MRI Brain should also be done to see for any brain lesion.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.

Regards
