Neurologic Localization and Diagnosis
Description of Neurologic Localization and Diagnosis
Written for a wide range of neurology and non-neurology clinicians and residents, Neurologic Localization and Diagnosis: Differential Diagnosis by Complaint-Based Approach is a concise, easy-to-use guide to establishing a neurologic diagnosis. This unique learning resource uses an algorithmic, complaint-based approach to localizing the condition, developing a list of differential diagnoses, and focusing further evaluation on establishing the diagnosis. 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 in the most rapid and efficient method possible.
