Most frequently the term refers to ionizing radiation, and to a level of radiation that will serve a specific purpose, rather than radiation exposure to normal ...Read more
Electric vs xray: Electroencephalogram (EEG) measures and records the electrical activity of brain.Electrodes attached to head and hooked by wires to computer record brain's electrical activity as wavy lines. Certain conditions, such as seizures, can be seen by the changes in the normal pattern of the brain. CT is xray imaging of brain for anatomy and pathology. Images reconstructed in different planes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Captures brain waves: Scalp electrodes are placed on designated brain areas. They are connected to amplifiers and to computers, which records brain electrical activity, for a minimum of 20 minutes. Information is filtered and displayed on a computer screen. It is interpreted by a neurologist. Different brain waves may be abnormal or normal. Eeg may be used to detect seizures, or other non-seizure abnormalities. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
