Analysis on the Clinical Value of Electroencephalogram in Diagnosis of Epilepsy

Changmin Ke, Peiping Wang, Chuna Zheng


Objective: To study the clinical value of electroencephalogram (EEG) in the diagnosis of epilepsy. Methods: 80 patients with epilepsy in the Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University from January to December 2019 were taken as research objects. EEG was applied to diagnose and analyze the electrical activity of these patients, results of which were compared with that of clinical diagnosis. Results: According to the statistics, the number of patients with epilepsy diagnosed by clinical manifestations and EEG was 78 and 75 respectively. The accuracy of EEG was calculated to be 96.2%. There was no significant difference between the diagnostic results of these two methods, and the results didn’t reach statistical significance (p>0.05). Conclusion: EEG has high accuracy in detecting and diagnosing epilepsy in clinic, which is worth promoting.
