ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY The electrical activity of the brain [the electroencephalogram (EEG)] is easily recorded from electrodes placed on the scalp.
21 The clinician caring for patients with neurologic symptoms is faced with an expanding number of imaging options, including computed tomography (CT), CT angiography (CTA), perfusion CT (pCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), MR angiography (MRA), functional MRI (fMRI), MR spectroscopy (MRS), MR neurography, diffusion and diffusion track imaging (DTI), and perfusion MRI (pMRI).
