- ‘Encephalopathy usually can be documented by slow wave activity on an electroencephalogram.’
- ‘Nearly all of the studies we reviewed mentioned the standard electroencephalogram as an absolute requirement for the diagnosis of epilepsy.’
- ‘It is necessary to investigate the relationship between each muscle stiffness and brain activities by electroencephalogram, positron emission tomography, and so on.’
- ‘When possible, an electroencephalogram should be obtained to assess prognosis and select appropriate drug therapy.’
- ‘Sequential electroencephalograms showed abnormal background activity with evidence of seizures, although these were not apparent clinically.’
- ‘Her brain activity was monitored with the help of an electroencephalogram or EEG.’
- ‘The electroencephalogram shows no sign of electrical activity in the brain, as recorded from a minimum of eight points.’
- ‘An extensive evaluation including ECG, echocardiogram, Holter studies, chest radiograph, brain MRI, electroencephalogram, and carotid ultrasound was unrevealing.’
