What can the Patient expect from the test?

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to detect  potential problems related to electrical activity of the brain. An EEG test measures the electrical impulses in your brain by using electrodes (small metal disks attached to thin wires) that are placed on your scalp. The electrodes transfer information from your brain to a computer that will measure and record the data. The test usually takes 60-90 minutes to complete.

The technician will strategically place the electrodes on your head. These spots will be prepped with a special cleaning gel to ensure an accurate connection. The test is conducted in a dimly lit room while you are reclining in a comfortable chair.

During the test, electrodes will send electrical impulse data from your brain to the computer. The computer converts the electrical impulses into visual patterns. The patterns are interpreted by Dr. Buza and a report of your results are forwarded to your physician for review.

A physician may require a 24, 48, or 72-hour EEG test to be completed. These tests are completed in the comfort of your own home.
