Edward Hospital's Electroencephalography (EEG) Department has earned a five-year accreditation from the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET).
Edward's EEG Department is the first in DuPage County and only the third in Illinois to have earned such national accreditation, which means it has met strict standards and is recognized as a site where patients and physicians receive quality diagnostics. ABRET's accreditation is based on the technical quality of EEGs performed and a review of policies and procedures at Edward.
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures and records electrical activity of the brain and is used to aid in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as headaches, dizziness, seizure disorders, strokes, brain tumors and degenerative brain disease.
ABRET is the national credentialing board for technologists in the specialties of EEG, Evoked Potential, Long Term Monitoring and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring. For more information, visit www.abret.org.
