What is a polysomnography (PSG) with seizure montage?
A polysomnography (PSG) with seizure montage is a test that was designed to help patients who suffer from seizures or epilepsy, suspected sleep-related seizure disorders, parasomnia disorders, or abnormal movements / behaviors during their sleep. The sleep study uses recordings that have been modified and expanded from 6 to 20 brainwave leads. The videotape recordings are also carefully reviewed for abnormal and complete movement montage or behaviors corresponding to the seizure discharges.
Why is a PSG with seizure montage used?
A PSG with seizure montage may be used for one of the following reasons:
- To determine if a patient is suffering from seizures during sleep
- To diagnose another sleep parasomnia

Afterward, patients can resume normal activities and can expect a follow-up appointment to review the results of their PSG test within a few weeks.
