Here is the first fully interactive tool that simulates an actual EEG lab reading session. EEG on DVD: Adult - An Interactive Reading Session teaches EEG interpretation to neurology residents, clinical neurophysiology fellows, and neurologists, using 200 EEG cases, over 400 EEGs, and a self-testing section.
A wide variety of adult EEGs are presented, covering diseases such as epilepsy, brain tumors, encephalopathies, stroke, degenerative disorders, comatose states, etc. Teaching points in the cases are emphasized, making this the perfect tool for clinical self-assessment and board preparation.
Features unique to this DVD include:
- Interactivity: This DVD is easy and simple to use, while providing comprehensive topic coverage
- Adaptability: Many EEG cases can be viewed in different montages
- Versatility: Users can view cases randomly, in similar topic groupings, or grouped by a specific EEG pattern or clinical entity
- Cases can be presented as questions, in random sequence, simulating an EEG reading session
- Practice quiz, with answers and references
- All information can be accessed in either audio or text mode
- This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
EEG on DVD: Adult - An Interactive Reading Session is the only publication that simulates real-life laboratory conditions, while providing questions and answers, self-assessment tools, detailed discussions, and the latest references.
The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society designates this educational activity for a maximum of 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Reviews"EEG on DVD: Adult: An Interactive Reading Session will undoubtedly become a part of the routine teaching curriculum in many EEG programs...A copy belongs in every teaching laboratory." --Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology
"Dr. Richard Brenner has made excellent use of digital technology to give an educational opportunity to technologists everywhere with his new EEG on DVD: Adult - An Interactive Reading Session. On this easy to follow, menu driven Windows-based DVD, Dr. Brenner shares his reading sessions for 137 case studies. Dr. Brenner discusses each sample page with the patient history, asks pertinent questions, and gives his interpretation... A very good reference. This interactive educational DVD would be an asset to any technologist preparing for board exams and would be a useful addition to any END lab library."-- American Journal of Electroneurodiagnostic Technology
"...Easy to install and use... This DVD is flexible enough to allow both the ability to pull up an example of a finding through the keyword search or to allow self-teaching through the case format. This is an invaluable tool in the academic setting as well as for review."-- Doody's Reviews- return to top -
