Diagnostic methods for the treatment of epilepsy

Electroencephalogram (EEG) - the most common method of diagnosing epilepsy. During studies on the patient's head attached electrodes. In Germany, for diagnostic purposes can be used a variety of methods of EEG: standard EEG, EEG during, prolonged video-EEG, mobile 24-hour EEG (some with video) , preoperative diagnosis of invasive video-EEG and intraoperative methods, even in children and infants.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI )

Positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon - emission computed tomography (SPECT ) - show on the screen the image layer studied region of the brain on the basis of energy gamma rays that appear in the annihilation of positrons (PET) and cerebral perfusion imaging ( SPECT ) in various brain regions. SPECT is considered very highly informative method of functional neuroimaging, which has a high diagnostic potential, especially in vascular diseases of the brain, as well as epilepsy.

Neuropsychological diagnosis . Neuropsychological tests play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy and may be conducted both before and after surgical treatment. Neuropsychological testing helps answer a few questions: 1) What is the area of ​​the brain disease site , provoking attacks of epilepsy? 2 ) Is there an increased risk of deterioration of the patient after the treatment? 3) What are the implications for mental health can be expected after surgical removal of the lesion?

Neuropsychological diagnosis is widely used in the treatment of epilepsy in Germany.
