Overview

An electroencephalogram (EEG) can be used in nuclear imaging to obtain an indication of brain abscess.

Other Imaging Findings

The EEG gives detailed information in regards to localization of the abscess. In most cases, the result is abnormal in patients as the brain abscess lateralizes to the side of the lesion.[1]
