Diagnosing Neurology Disorders

Electroencephalogram (EEG) An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to detect abnormalities related to electrical activity of the brain.

Comprehensive Neurodiagnostic Testing

Dayton Children’s offers advanced neurodiagnostic testing to help our team diagnose neurological disorders and evaluate how well therapy is working. All of the pediatric neurology tests listed below are available at our main campus in Dayton. Electroencephalogram tests also are available at Dayton Children’s specialty care centers in Lima, Middletown and Springfield.

Neurodiagnostic tests include the following.

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) measures and records the electrical activity of the brain. It can help in the diagnosis of conditions such as epilepsy and sleep disorders.
  • Electromyogram (EMG) is a test that records the electrical activity of muscles. It is used to diagnose nerve, muscle and spinal cord disease.
  • Evoked potentials are used to measure the electrical signals to the brain that are generated by hearing, touch or sight. These tests can help confirm neurological conditions such as a brain tumor and spinal cord injury.
  • Nerve conduction velocity tests are used to measure how electrical signals travel through the nerves. This test is used to detect nerve dysfunction.
  • Sleep monitoring takes place in the Dayton Children’s pediatric sleep center.
