In brief: A better answer is
The MRI can be negative or it can be positive.
Sometimes they have to do a very detailed MRI to find the possible seizure focus. Don't get an open mri. You need a 3t MRI if possible on a 32 channel head coil. There are few units like this but they are super high quality. Your doctor might not even know this. Also you want a pre and post contrast study.

In brief: Seizure
Depends on type of seizure &whether cause is organic and involves the brain, which would show on mri.
