EEG

At the Electroneurodiagnostic Clinic of Carondelet Neurological Institute, we specialize in performing diagnostic tests that provide information about your neurological function to help pinpoint the cause of your symptoms. All of our studies are performed using advanced diagnostic equipment, our highly trained technologists work closely with neurologists and neurosurgeons who have specific training and experience in the field of neurosciences.

Our Services

The diagnostic services we offer gives crucial information on your health that can be used by your doctor or medical specialists to help inform treatment. We offer a wide range of electroneurodiagnostic services, including:

Electroencephalography (EEG)

An EEG records the electrical activity of the brain detected by electrodes that are placed on the scalp. Doctors use EEG recordings to assist in the diagnosis of various neurological

conditions, including headaches, dizziness, seizure disorders, strokes and degenerative brain disorders. It’s also used to identify organic causes of psychiatric conditions and disabilities in children and even to determine irreversible brain death. 

Ambulatory and Long-Term EEG Monitoring

If you have symptoms that are recurrent, despite having a normal EEG, you may benefit from a prolonged or ambulatory EEG. This testing can take place in the Neurodiagnostics Lab where you’ll be monitored for up to 12 hours on an outpatient basis. Alternatively, you may be sent home with an ambulatory EEG that records results on a compact flash drive.

With both types of recording, you can use a push button to mark on the recording when an episode occurs. These systems are equipped with a seizure detection program that automatically marks an event that may be a seizure.

Bedside Monitoring

Critically ill patients are EEG/video monitored within the Neurological Intensive Care Center. Neurologists and neurosurgeons can remotely view the live EEG/video feed to keep a close watch on how you’re doing.  This group of patients includes those that are in status epilepticus (when the brain is in a state of persistent seizure) or are having frequent seizures.

Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Velocity (EMG/NCV) Testing

EMG/NCV testing evaluates the integrity of the peripheral nerve and the functioning of the nerve. Nerve testing is performed by placing a recording electrode on the muscle of the limb involved and applying electrical stimulation at prescribed points over a nerve to determine nerve function. If indicated, muscle testing can be performed to evaluate muscle function in addition to nerve function. Patients who are candidates for EMG/NCV testing include those with carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve problems and neuropathies, such as diabetic neuropathy.
