Diagnosing Epilepsy

There are more than 40 different types of epilepsy and for people over 65, a number of diseases can lead to epilepsy. By using the most advanced diagnostic technology, the INI can precisely diagnose the type of epilepsy and provide the best treatment options.

As part of the diagnostics available, patients with uncontrollable seizures whose diagnosis has yet to be determined, have access to our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. The unit consists of private rooms that record seizures on video and by EEG (electroencephalogram). This state-of-the-art diagnostic technology can also help diagnose conditions that mimic epilepsy.
