Electroencephalogram (EEG) Laboratory
Information and Appointments
Electroneurodiagnostic technology is the scientific field devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity of the brain and nervous system.
The UW Hospital and Clinics' Electroencephalogram (EEG) Laboratory provides electroneurodiagnostic services for inpatients and outpatients of all ages, and also provides monitoring during surgery. Our EEG laboratory is state-of-the-art, with exceptional digital equipment and highly-trained technologists.
Patients need to be referred by their primary care physicians for appointments.
What is an EEG?
An EEG records the electrical activity of the brain. Highly-sensitive monitoring equipment records the activity through electrodes that are placed on the patient’s scalp.
Through this painless test, physicians are able to diagnose a variety of neurological problems, from common headaches and dizziness to seizure disorders, strokes and degenerative brain disease.
