EEG

Technicians use EEG, or Electroencephalography, to diagnose problems in the brain's electrical activity. The EEG test is useful in detecting and evaluating epilepsy and stroke. Patients with Alzheimer's disease, brain tumors, confusion, head injuries, and sleep problems may also benefit from undergoing an EEG. For our epileptic patients, we provide inpatient video EEG monitoring as well as outpatient EEG.

Undergoing an EEG test is safe and causes no discomfort. During the test, you will lie on your back with your eyes closed. A number of small electrodes will be placed on your scalp. The electrodes transmit electrical impulses or "brain waves" to a recording device.
