Quantitative EEG

Quantitative EEG (qEEG): The “q” in qEEG stands for “quantitative” computer analysis of EEG data for vastly improving reliability, objectivity, and sensitivity. Computers are used to instantaneously transform the oscillations into frequencies to reveal subtle patterns of dysregulation undetectable to the naked eye. In this way, qEEG has advantages over conventional non-quantitative EEG which relies upon subjective “eyeball” examination of EEG tracings and therefore has low inter-rater reliability for non-epilepsy cases.
