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 disorders, learning problems, language delay, developmental delay, and fainting spells.

How Boston 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.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
