Electroencephalography (EEG) is the most specific test for diagnosing epilepsy and other disorders because it records the electrical activity of the brain. It is a safe and painless procedure. Associates in Neurosciences provides both Video EEG and Routine EEG services in the convenience and comfort of your doctor’s office.
Routine EEG Services
The Routine EEG Testing is the most common test for epilepsy and other disorders. The test records electrical activity of the brain and usually takes 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Video EEG Services
Video Ambulatory EEG is considered to be the Gold Standard for EEG testing. This allows the doctor to see any kind of events that you may have while you are conducting some of your normal daily activities. The neurologist will also get a better understanding of what might be happening at night while you sleep. The ambulatory EEG device will be worn for a specific amount of time that your neurologist believes will give him/her the best chance to find what they are looking for, usually 72 hours in most cases.
