- Routine EEG is a brief (usually 20-40 minutes) and non-invasive test completed in the doctor’s office that allows the doctor to view a patient’s brain wave activity. The test is often performed on a patient with a known or suspected seizure disorder. Electrodes are placed on pre-measured areas of the scalp, and then removed when the study is over. The presence of electrographic abnormalities or seizure activity during a routine EEG is likely consistent with seizure disorder. On the other hand, a normal study does not rule out an underlying seizure disorder. Often, more prolonged EEG monitoring is required, either by outpatient (ambulatory) continuous EEG monitoring or by inpatient continuous video-EEG monitoring.
