Diagnostic Neurophysiology (EEG & EMG)

Meet the Diagnostic Neurophysiology (EEG & EMG) Team or EEG Department because the most common test they perform is an EEG (electroencephalogram).

Neurophysiology a highly regarded tertiary service at BC Children’s Hospital. Although this Department is operationally independent of the Division, all of the medical staff in the Department are neurologists.

This year, the service expanded to new areas, developing more exact determination of brain resection in epilepsy surgery patients and more robust and reliable techniques for intraoperative monitoring.

Did you know that most tests require children to be sleep deprived or sedated?

EEG does not hurt. Even babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) have this test done.

We do more than 25 tests on the brains, nerves and muscles of children!
