Electroencephalogram (EEG)

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a diagnostic test that measures electrical activity in the brain.

The technician attaches small metals (electrodes) to your head, the electrodes are connected to a computer which will record the brain activity in form of waves.

EEG is useful in diagnosing brain disorders, especially epilepsy/convulsive disorder.

Your data is then analyzed and interpreted after the test.

Before you have a medical test, make sure you ask your doctor why you need it. Ask him or her to explain all the potential benefits and risks. Together, you can make the best choice for you and your health.
