ECVT is a methode that used to measure volumetric capacitance that could generate 3D images of the enclosed region with capacitance sensor. This methode is used for this research to study brain electric activity of epilepsy patient and normal patient. Patients were examined using EEG to get information about normal/abnormal of the patient and abnormality position which show epileptiform wave and then examined using ECVT. Brain electric activity image from ECVT examination was viewed as axial, sagital, coronal slices. Each brain electric activity patient’s image was analyzed to understand charactheristic of normal brain electric activity and epilepsy patient. Brain electric activity of normal patients image shows a similar uniform distribution of high brain electric activity, homogen and continue around cortex. Brain electric activity of epilepsy patient image shows difference one and each other with brain electric activity is heterogen. Abnormality region of brain electric activity epilepsy patient shows activity which is not shown in the normal patient’s brain.
