EEG is the name commonly used for electroencephalography. EEG is an important test for diagnosing epilepsy. Conventional EEG has relatively low sensitivity in epilepsy, ranging between 25-56%. The combination of wake and sleep records gives a yield of 80% in patients with clinically confirmed epilepsy. Video-EEG is most helpful in determining whether seizures with unusual features are actually epilepsy.
