The EEG Lab at Littleton Regional Healthcare offers advanced neurodiagnostic testing provided by well-trained and experienced personnel.
The EEG (electroencephalogram or 'brain wave test') is critical in the diagnosis of seizures, staring spells, unexplained fainting spells, and confusional states. The EEG also aids in the diagnosis and management of other neurological problems such as; headaches, head injuries, strokes and memory loss. We regularly perform and interpret both adult and pediatric EEG's.
The EEG lab also offers Evoked Potential testing. These tests are useful to evaluate the nervous system pathways of vision (VEP or Visual Evoked Potential), hearing (BAEP or Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potential) or sensation (SEP or Somatosensory Evoked Potential). Evoked Potential testing is predominantly used to evaluate nerve disorders.
