The Electroencephalogram [EEG] is a recording of the on-going electrical activity of the brain.
An EEG can assist in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological problems - from common headaches and dizziness to seizure disorders, strokes and degenerative brain disease. The EEG is also used to determine organic causes of psychiatric symptoms and disabilities in children, and can assist physicians in determining irreversible brain death.
Studies can last from 20 to 60 minutes.
The EEG Department at Peninsula Regional Medical Center is open Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
