Electroencephalogram (EEG)

Electroencephalograms are essential for the diagnosis of epilepsies and treatment of seizures. Twenty-five digital EEGs are networked throughout the hospital. More than 20 long-term EEG/video monitoring units are available in our center. The recorded seizures are stored digitally for future use in the follow-up of the treatment and the clinical feature analysis.



Magnetoencephalography (MEG)
