Routine EEG & Video Ambulatory EEG
Routine EEG (Electroencephalogram)
Your doctor may request a routine EEG to better understand episodes of confusion, inattention, or seizure disorders.
At Selkirk Neurology, our trained technologists will review your medical history and meet with you to explain the test and answer questions you may have. They administer your EEG testing in clinic, which includes attaching painless electrodes to the scalp to measure your brain's response to specific stimuli.
Your neurologist will use the results from this procedure to aid in the diagnosis of your medical condition.
Video Ambulatory EEG
If your doctor needs more information about causes of seizures, confusion or inattention, they may order a video ambulatory EEG.
For this procedure, our technologist will attach the electrodes to your scalp and cover them with a protective wrapping. You will be sent home with a small back-pack size recorder to capture your brain's electrical activity over a 2-3 day period and a video camera to capture any active episodes.
Your neurologist will use the results from this testing, along with the video to aid in the diagnosis of your medical condition.
At Selkirk Neurology, our skilled technologists are available to answer any questions you may have regarding this test. For more information contact us our office at 509-473-0885 or email us at
