Electroencephalogram (EEG)


Our EEG department is equipped with a RMS EEG-32 super spec 24 channel machine that is fully computerised with video and USB facilities.

What is EEG?

An EEG is used to detect problems in the electrical activity of the brain that may be associated with certain brain disorders. The measurements given by an EEG are used to confirm or rule out various conditions, including: seizure disorders.

As brain cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses the EEG detects potential problems associated with this activity. The test tracks and records brain wave patterns. Small, flat metal discs called electrodes are attached to the scalp with wires. The electrodes analyze the electrical impulses in the brain and send signals to a computer, where the results are recorded.
