What do EEG technologists do?

In addition to performing the EEG (electroencephalogram) test, EEG technologists explain the testing procedure to the patient and obtain important background information from the patient. They then apply the electrodes to the patient's scalp, record the EEG, and prepare the EEG record for the doctor's review.
