Advanced Inpatient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit
Each year, Albany Med performs more than 2,000 electroencephalograms and evaluates more than 300 patients in its inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit for improved medical care or surgical cure. The epicenter of Albany Med’s program is the inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU). The EMU provides six fixed beds and one portable unit for continuous digital video and EEG monitoring to record, characterize and map patients’ seizures. The most advanced monitoring experience is available today, including wireless brainwave recording. The EMU operates 24 hours a day and is staffed by dedicated epilepsy nurses and technologists.

Philips Ingenia Wide-Bore 3T MRI
The most powerful magnetic resonance imaging scanner available, the 3T MRI, produces the clearest images possible of the human anatomy, thus improving diagnostic accuracy. Tesla refers to the strength of the magnent within the scanner. The 3T is twice as powerful as the previous scanner on the market and has roughly 60,000 times the strength of the Earth's magnetic field.
