Getting an accurate diagnosis

At the epilepsy center, we have advanced technology to accurately diagnose epilepsy at our state-of-the-art Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU), the only one of its kind in the Lehigh Valley.

The EMU provides adults with long-term monitoring to help confirm a diagnosis, determine the origin of seizures and modify treatment under supervision. In the EMU, you will receive 24/7 observation within the Neuroscience Center at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest. You’ll receive care in a private room customized for seizure care and be monitored with Continuous Video EEG (cvEEG) technology.
