Epilepsy can present itself in many ways, so our treatment is individualized as much as possible. Lurie Children’s Epilepsy Division provides an advanced approach made possible by a state-of-the-art imaging and monitoring system that records visual images of children as they play.
The same video monitoring system is also used while a child is having an electroencephalogram (EEG). An EEG is a test that shows normal and abnormal electrical activity in the brain, and it can also give information about specific types of seizure disorders.
Our doctors perform EEGs while using video monitoring to help link the child's brain electrical patterns to the physical seizure. This multifaceted measurement gives us the building blocks for the best and most personalized treatment for your child.
