How is Epilepsy Diagnosed at Epilepsy Care Clinic, NEUROMED

We provide a complete range of routine and advanced EEG services, as well as expert diagnosis and treatment of all epilepsies.

Epilepsy is diagnosed clinically and through EEG (electroencephalography). Knowing if a person is having a seizure and diagnosing the type of seizure or epilepsy syndrome can be difficult. There are many other disorders that can cause changes in behavior and can be confused with epilepsy. Since the treatment of seizures depends on an accurate diagnosis, making sure that a person has epilepsy and knowing its kind is a critical first step.

What happens during a seizure is one of the most important pieces of information. And, since seizures rarely happen in a doctor’s office, the information given to the doctor and other health care professionals by you or other witnesses is extremely important. Yet, even with accurate descriptions of events, other tests are needed to learn more about the brain – what is causing the events and where the problem is located.
