Leading neurologists provide up-to-date, practical guidance for neurology residents, medical students, and neurologists, as well as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and non-neurology physicians.
Offers a comprehensive approach to neurologic diagnosis, essentials of clinical neuroanatomy, localization by dysfunction and anatomy, and diagnosis of suspected disorders.
Concentrates on diagnosis by history and examination wherever possible, but also includes use of specific diagnostic tests where needed.
Addresses clinical evaluation for the purpose of establishing the diagnosis using the most rapid and efficient method possible.
