Neurodiagnostics Lab: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Comprehensive care. We offer the most comprehensive range of tests in the region, including specialized and rare studies available nowhere else. This includes the ambulatory electroencephalogram (EEG). This study monitors brain activity over 24 to 72 hours to identify symptom triggers that might not happen during a shorter period in the lab.
  • Unmatched epilepsy expertise. Vanderbilt is recognized by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers as the only Level 4 Epilepsy Center for adults in Tennessee. Vanderbilt also has the largest Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) in Tennessee, with eight adult and four pediatric monitoring beds.
  • Depth of experience. We are the only facility in the area with the expertise to train technicians. This means our team has a higher level of skill, experience and knowledge than you can find in other diagnostic labs.
