Electroencephalography (EEG) allows physicians to look at the brain’s electrical activity. It can help the physician decide if events are seizures, and if so, what treatments would be indicated. EEGs may be performed for 1-2 hours as an outpatient to gather clues that might indicate a child is prone to seizures. Full day or overnight studies, called long term monitoring (LTM), are performed to record events with EEG and video and identify seizures. BMC’s a highly specialized team of EEG technicians who work hard to make the experience a positive one for children. Once it has been determined a person has epilepsy, the physician attempts to find a cause for the seizures. Depending on the clinical history, a series of other laboratory tests and brain imaging studies may be indicated.
