Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists are people who obtain interpretable recordings of patients’ nervous system. In addition to performing the EEG test, the Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist manages medical emergencies in the laboratory and prepares a descriptive report of recorded activity for the Electroencephalographer. The opportunities of the technologist may also include laboratory management and the supervision of EEG technicians. Although Electroneurodiagnostic personnel work primarily in the neurology departments of hospitals, many work in private offices of neurologists and neurosurgeons.
Programs may be 12 months or more and may be integrated into a college-sponsored program leading to an associate degree.
