Department of Neurodiagnostics
The Neurodiagnostic Department at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) provides neurodiagnostic testing which includes routine electroencephalograms (EEGs), video ambulatory EEG studies, evoked potentials, and long-term EEG monitoring studies in our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) and intensive care units. An EEG is a neurophysiologic technique primarily used in the evaluation of epilepsy (or possible epilepsy), but it may also be recommended other conditions.
Who We Are
The Department of Neurodiagnostics includes more than 30 electroencephalographic technologists who provide specialized and expert care to all patients at the hospital, CHOP's Specialty Care Network, and numerous affiliated hospitals. We work closely with the Division of Neurology, the Division of Neurosurgery, and neurology researchers.
Our Electroencephalographic Technicians are graduates from accredited programs by the American Society of Neurodiagnostic Technologists (ASET) and they are individually accredited by ABRET-Neurodiagnostic Credentialing and Accreditation.
