Preview

EEG continues to be an important test to functionally evaluate people with suspected seizures. Although few specific EEG patterns exist for specific diseases, the presence of epileptiform discharges and patterns on the EEG may help identify certain syndromes. Clinicians using EEG in the evaluation and management of people with suspected epilepsy should be familiar with the different epileptiform discharges and their associated clinical significance.
