What is VEEG Testing?
A video electroencephalogram (VEEG) is a painless test that closely monitors your brain activity. With this test, doctors can detect seizures, epilepsy, or other conditions that mimic seizures. During the test, you wear 21 small disks (called leads or electrodes) on your scalp. Through a series of wires, each disk connects to an amplifier, a small device worn during the test, to read your brain’s signals and collect the data.
During video EEG testing, a camera is used to create an audio-video recording of your body movements over a few days. Your doctor uses the audio and video along with the EEG data to better understand if your brain activity is normal or to understand where it might be abnormal.
Why is a VEEG Performed?
Doctors use EEGs to diagnose certain conditions such as seizure disorders, epilepsy, head injury, encephalitis, memory problems, sleep disorders, stroke, or dementia. A video EEG test supplements brainwave data with video monitoring, so your doctor gets critical information on how your body movements may match your brain activity.
