Electroencephalography (EEG) is a test used to detect brain electrical waves. It is used to evaluate the electrical activity of the brain in epilepsy patients and seizure disorders. In EEG, recording is taken from a large number of points on the head with cables called electrodes. It can be compared to cardiac electros (ECG).
Diagnosis and follow-up of epilepsy patients: the purpose of EEG in epilepsy is to support the diagnosis, classify it, investigate whether there is a brain lesion and monitor epilepsy patients.
The EEG process is performed by an EEG technician who has been trained in this regard. In the process performed by the EEG technician, the points where the EEG electrodes will be placed on the head, scalp are determined. Then metal electrodes, usually as small as 20-25, are placed. It is fixed to your scalp with a special substance called "Pie" so that the electrodes can receive noise-free recording and remain constant for the duration of shooting. This substance is completely cleaned when washed. EEG is done with your eyes closed and in a comfortable position. Shooting can be done by sitting or lying down. Additional activation methods are routinely used, often in the form of intermittent light stimulation and rapid breathing. These activation methods can make brain waves that are not normally visible become visible. Activation methods applied in
Clean your head, hair gel, no substances such as spray earrings, metal jewelry such as hızma removal; Intense Cream or makeup will need to be removed during shooting.It is important that you are full during shooting.We recommend that you have a comfortable outfit on you, not wear clothes that squeeze-sweat. If your doctor has requested a sleep EEG or insomnia-activated shot, you should be Sleepless the night before. It is useful to get detailed information from our technician on this issue. You should take the medications you are taking in a normal time, but be sure to inform the technician or doctor who will prepare the report before shooting.
Unless otherwise requested by physicians, the duration of EEG registration in adults is 20-30 min. Periods are different in sleep EEG and child EEG. It also takes about 15 minutes to place the electrodes before shooting. We recommend that you plan a 1-hour period when coming to shoot.
During EEG, only brain electrical waves are recorded. The body is not given electricity. It is also out of the question to receive any Rays.
Simultaneous video recording during EEG shooting. Here, the goal is to compare some suspected movement or seizure-like conditions with simultaneous EEG changes.
An EEG shot performed by a technician is examined by a neurologist and a detailed report is prepared. EEG page samples and CD recordings are also included in the report and given to the patient.
