Low cost, convenience, higher diagnostic yield, and the ability to capture circadian patterns are the main advantages of aEEG. It is a useful tool in the diagnosis of epilepsy and nonepileptic paroxysmal disorders. Ambulatory EEG is superior to routine EEG in capturing interictal epileptiform abnormalities particularly in relation to nat..
