Quantitative electroencephalogram QEEG
The report is really long (i am not going to write all of that) and is divided into different areas: EEG LINE FORMAT DATA, COMPUTERIZED TOPOGRAPHIC ANALYSES, AMPLITUDE ASYMMETRY ANALYSIS, and COHERENCE ANALYSIS.
The IMPRESSION STATES: This was abnormal QEEG, brain injury analysis was positive with 70% probability.
Can anyone tell me what an QEEG is and what this impression means???
I am dx: with frontal, temporal, and parietal lobe seizures.
A QEEG ("quantitative EEG") is an EEG recording done using sensors on about 20 sites on the scalp in order to crate a brain map. The brain map is actually a series of maps, that shows the average level of activity at each measured spot. This brain map is compared to a database of brain maps of healthy average people of comparable age and sex to the patient, in order to determine abnormal brain activity.
So basically, your QEEG says that your brain map came up positive for bad brain waves. I'm not sure whether the "brain injury" part means they suspect that there was brain trauma as a primary cause, or whether the term is just being used loosely to describe areas that generate abnormal brain waves.
