Electroencephalography (item 11000)

Routine electroencephalography should not be performed for the following indications/presentations, except after discussion with a Neurologist. In some of these situations a routine EEG is of relatively low diagnostic value, while in others it would be more appropriate to refer the patient directly for a prolonged EEG, or to a Neurologist for consultation and possible further investigation:

  • Suspected Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES)
  • Syncope
  • Exclusion of a mass lesion
  • Headache & migraine
  • Behavioural disturbance/aggression
  • Tics
  • Postural dizziness
  • Non-specific fatigue
  • Intellectual impairment
  • Paediatric simple febrile seizures
  • Breath-holding spells
  • Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
