We provide both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic services for neurologic disorders in adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients.
Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. Brain cells communicate through electrical impulses, and an EEG can help detect problems associated with brain activity.
EEG is commonly used in the diagnosis of:
- Seizure disorders, including epilepsy
- Head injury
- Encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain
- Brain tumor
- Memory problems
- Sleep disorders
Administered by a specialized technician, an EEG usually takes 60 to 90 minutes to conduct. You will feel little to no discomfort during the test, and there are no associated risks.
