Diagnostic Service – EEG
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to find problems related to electrical activity of the brain. An EEG tracks and records brain wave patterns. Small metal discs with thin wires (electrodes) are placed on the scalp, and then send signals to a computer to record the results.
Welkin offers advanced EEG testing at its centers. The patient is required to shampoo his/her hair and rinse well before visiting the center. The EEG is a simple non-invasive procedure that involves the attachment of electrodes to gel sensitized nodes of the head area, from where electrical signals in the brain are read by the probes. The gel needs to be cleaned and washed off with thorough shampooing once the procedure of recording electrical signals in the brain is complete.
