The EEG in psychiatry

  • George W. Fenton (a1) and Kevin Standage (a2)
Extract

Although the EEG has been in constant clinical use for over 40 years, there have been surprisingly few systematic studies of the pattern of referral and clinical use of electroencephalography in a NHS psychiatric service. In view of the current concern about medical audit and cost effective use of special investigation facilities, it is an opportune time to audit the use of clinical electroencephalography in psychiatry. The current study examines the clinical use of electroencephalography in a district psychiatric service that provides comprehensive care for the population of Dundee (population 180,000).
