• Prolonged frequency modulation (FM) radiotelemetry EEG and videotape monitoring (TEEG-VR) have been used together extensively to study patients with epileptic seizures. This technique was used to differentiate epileptic seizures from other episodic behavior in 45 children referred to our epilepsy center in whom the diagnosis could not be made by history, standard EEGs, or observation alone. In 40 children, the behavior in question was recorded during TEEG-VR. In 15 patients, this behavior was found to represent epileptic seizures. Although not indicated in all children with suspected epileptic seizures, TEEG-VR can be a useful diagnostic test in selected children.
