In order to be able to put together a suitable treatment programme for you, an intake interview is not enough. That is why there will always be additional diagnostic tests after the intake. For example, we ask you to fill in questionnaires and to wear a sleep watch for a few days. If there is an intake for an rTMS treatment or neurofeedback treatment, we will perform a neurophysiological examination (QEEG), sometimes supplemented by an extensive (neuro-) psychological examination.
Interpreting the data from a QEEG report requires training and specialist knowledge. To explain it in simple terms, a QEEG records and measures brain activity at 26 different locations in the brain. The information from the QEEG report, together with the results from the intake interview, the questionnaires and the collected information from the sleep watch, are used to draw up a personal treatment plan. In the case of rTMS treatment, a QEEG is also performed to determine whether rTMS can be applied safely. The QEEG is not used to make a diagnosis.
You have registered yourself – or your child – with us for an intake interview with additional diagnostic tests. In preparation for rTMS or neurofeedback treatment, a QEEG and/or neuropsychological examination will then be scheduled for you. The QEEG examination usually takes 2 to 3 hours. In consultation with you, the QEEG examination can be scheduled on the same day as the intake interview. Sometimes you will have to go to another location once for the QEEG examination.
