qEEG Brain Testing: A Different Look at Brain Functionality

Similar to CereScan’s qSPECT imaging, qEEG (quantitative electroencephalography) is another way we can examine your brain’s functionality. If you’re struggling with Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD/ADD, sleep issues or concussions, qEEG functional brain testing could provide answers.

While SPECT imaging measures perfusion (blood flow) and can pinpoint problem areas below the cortex, qEEG brain mapping measures cortical electrical activity in the form of brainwave patterns. In conjunction with CereScan’s qSPECT functional brain imaging, qEEG provides additional information about your brain functions and can be used to track treatment progress.

What is a qEEG?

Electroencephalography (EEG) is the measurement of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp which reflect cortical activity (brain waves). So, a Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is the analysis of the digitized EEG, also referred to as “brain mapping.” This information tells how us how your brain cells are communicating and can be used by providers to develop a targeted treatment plan that fits you.

I’m so glad I had the scan done. Now, I feel like I know what I’m up against. Thank you for helping me understand my brain.”
– U.S. Military Veteran and Former CereScan Patient

How does qEEG brain mapping work?

During qEEG testing, an elastic cap with 19 sensors is placed on the head using electrode gel to measure brainwave patterns. As you relax, your brain’s electrical activity is recorded with eyes closed and eyes open. The noninvasive procedure usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes.

The data collected from your qEEG is then analyzed by a neurofeedback specialist and compared to one or more normative databases. A comprehensive report is then prepared based on your brainwave patterns followed by a review of the findings with our experienced clinical team.

“Functional brain imaging is paramount in assisting doctors to differentiate and identify the underlying biological causes of brain-based disorders.”
– Dr. David Perlmutter, Neurologist

qSPECT and qEEG Case Study

Reason for Visit: A 22-year-old woman was concerned with her Bipolar disorder diagnosis as she was experiencing a variety of emotional and cognitive symptoms and treatment was failing.

CereScan Findings: While her qEEG results showed evidence of bipolar disorder, her qSPECT findings revealed traumatic brain injury, anxiety disorder and atypical mood disorder ( Bipolar ).
