Techniques of Neurological Examination : A Programmed Text
This book's self-teaching, programmed format helps to teach the reader how to conduct a neurologic examination, reviews the anatomy and physiology for interpreting it and shows which laboratory tests help to clarify the clinical problem. This edition has been updated to reflect the impact of new imaging modalities such as CT and MRI on neurological diagnosis. It is designed to closely represent the situations that physicians encounter in practice and reinforces the diagnoses they will need to make.
