Evoked potential studies for multiple sclerosis, spinal disorders, visual complaints, hearing disorders, vertigo etc are possible. We can also detect hearing impairment early in newborns so early remedial steps can be initiated.
- A fairly common condition like epilepsy can be detected by EEG department and the type of Epilepsy classified to choose the correct drugs by Video EEG department. The department of EEG is also useful in excluding other disorders like syncope as well as other causes of alteration of consciousness like metabolic encephalopathies.
