AAN 2022 | Misinterpretation and interrater variability in routine EEG interpretation

Selim Benbadis, MD, FAAN, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, discusses the issues with routine electroencephalogram (EEG) interpretation. Currently, there is no mandatory requirement for EEG training to become a neurologist, resulting in misinterpretation and interrater variability in routine EEG interpretation. More commonly, there is an overinterpretation of EEGs, leading to incorrect diagnoses of epilepsy. Prof. Benbadis evaluates the solutions to this issue, highlighting that enforcing systematic, mandatory training across all residency programs may not be possible, despite most programs having some training in place today. This interview took place at the American Academy of Neurology 2022 Congress in Seattle, WA.
