Rhode Island Hospital's CEP is designated a Level 4 Epilepsy Center (the highest level) by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. This designation is earned by centers that provide the most comprehensive forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring; most extensive medical, neuropsychological, and psychosocial treatments; and the complete range of surgical procedures for epilepsy. Ours is the only team in Rhode Island that includes experts in the surgical treatment of epilepsy. We have available the latest technologies needed to evaluate adult and pediatric patients, including long-term video-EEG monitoring and advanced neuroimaging (3T MRI, fMRI, PET and SPECT).
