Dr. Imam is board certified in clinical neurophysiology with emphasis on epilepsy and neuromuscular disorders. Epilepsy monitoring or long-term inpatient monitoring is available at Baylor Grapevine.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. Seizures are caused by a sudden abnormal electrical discharge in the brain, which can produce a variety of symptoms and signs, including loss of consciousness, loss of sense of awareness, starring, and involuntary movements. This condition affects approximately one percent of Americans at any given time. Approximately three percent will develop epilepsy by age 75. Most seizure disorders are cryptogenic meaning there is no known cause.
In the clinic, diagnostic modalities such as standard electroencephalogram (EEG) and ambulatory electroencephalogram (AEEG) are available. Standard EEG is a one hour electrical recording of the brain. Ambulatory EEG is an extended portable recording of the brain. The recording times are 24 hours, 36 hours, or 72 hours. All recording is performed by a certified EEG technician and all studies are personally reviewed and interpreted by me with input from the technician.
