What is Electroencephalography?
The EEG medical abbreviation describes an instrument that is used for electroencephalography. This area of medicine focuses on detecting and recording electrical impulses in the brain.
What Does EEG Measure?
The EEG scan can be used to detect any abnormalities in the brain, and the information from the scan is used as part of a neurodevelopmental screening test for children.
What Pediatric Conditions Are Diagnosed with an Electroencephalogram (EEG)?
The electroencephalogram is used to diagnose:
- Some behavior issues
- Problems sleeping
What Happens During the EEG?
During the EEG, your child lays comfortably while the electrodes are attached to the scalp. Once the EEG scan begins, the electrical impulses in the brain are detected by the electrodes and relayed to a machine that prints out wave patterns. Each line on the report represents a certain area of the brain. Dr. Vasconcellos uses the results to diagnose childhood issues that are caused by irregularities in brain activity.
