The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a measure of brain waves. It is a test that provides evidence of how the brain functions over time. The EEG is used in the evaluation of brain disorders. Most commonly it is used to show the type and location of the activity in the brain during a seizure. It is a very effective test for diagnosing Epilepsy or cause of unexplained Seizure also called `Mirgi' in Hindi. The results of this test are reported by Neurologists and EHL Diagnostics Gurgaon has some of the finest neurologists like Dr. Reena Thakral to provide accurate reporting for EEG Studies. At EHL Diagnostics we have the complete Neuro Lab which provides tests like EEG, EMG, NCV, BERA and Sleep Study.
Epilepsy is a disease mostly afflicting children and requires very long treatment lasting 3-15 years. Epilepsy can be caused due to psyiological or psychological reasons. If there is any physiological problem it would be detected either on CT Scan of the Brain or MRI of the Brain but if the seizures are due to any psychological factor then it would be diagnosed on EEG Study of the Brain.
