An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a neurophysiologic technique primarily used in the evaluation of epilepsy (or possible epilepsy), but it may also be recommended for headaches, behavioral disturbances, attention disorderslearning problems, language delay, developmental delay, and fainting spells.

How Children’s approaches an electroencephalogram

Pioneered for pediatric use at Boston Children's Hospital, an EEG is an important test used worldwide to detect neurological abnormalities in children. At Children's, we perform more than 3,500 every year.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
