Similar to an EKG for the heart, an EEG evaluates electrical activity of the brain in order to diagnose and classify seizures. We offer routine EEG performed in the office as well as extended testing. This extended testing, known as ambulatory EEG, is worn home by the patient while a digital recorder saves all the data. Should the patient experience the spells in question it will be captured by the recording device. This is useful for distinguishing spells that may be due to other medical conditions from seizure.
Our scanner is shorter and wider than traditional MRI scanners, giving an open feel during the examination. These features also make the time to complete the MRI exam quicker and less costly, while delivering exceptional image quality. Our MRI facility is accredited by the American College of Radiology.
