This protocol corresponds to the level of world standards.
In MC Nairi under the protocol were examined more than 20 patients of various age, suffering from epilepsy. Most of the patients previously passed examination in various clinics of Armenia and abroad. If earlier, some of the examined patients weren`t diagnosed epilepsy (based on MRI images), in accordance with the new protocol, the disease has been recorded.
