SPECIAL EEG TESTING: MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAM (MEG)
Magnetoencephalogram (MEG) is a highly sophisticated way of recording brain waves (through magnetic fields) that helps localize the origin of the seizures. This tool provides very important information in the pre-surgical evaluation for epilepsy surgery. There are only a few centers in the world that have access to this new technology. The Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group has the only MEG in NY, NJ and CT.
