    The electroencephalogram (EEG) laboratory provides testing for patients with possible seizure disorders.

    Our services include:

    • Diagnostic EEG
      • A diagnostic EEG measures brain wave activity to evaluate different areas of the brain during periods of sedation.
    • EEG 24-hour video
      • To detect intermittent seizure activity, it is often necessary to monitor a patients brain wave functions for 24 hours or more. During this time, the patient's activities are also monitored by video.

    Staff

    The EEG laboratory is staffed by six trained technologists who are responsible for the testing of persons of all ages.
