Prospective Study of New-Onset Seizures Presenting as Status Epilepticus in Childhood
Neurol 74:636-642, 624, Singh,R.K.,et al, 2010
See this aricle in Pubmed

Article Abstract
Children who present in status epilepticus that is not a prolonged febrile convulsion should undergo neuroimaging in the initial evaluation. For any child who presents in status epilepticus and has not yet returned to baseline, the possibility of nonconvulsive status epilepticus should be considered. Although CT is often more widely accepted, especially in the urgent setting, strong consideration for MRI should be given when available, due to the superior yield.
