Develop and perfect your neurological localization skills with the gold standard text in the field.
Anatomical localization skills based in physical examination are essential for any clinician caring for patients with neurologic disease processes. Newly revised and updated, Localization in Clinical Neurology, Seventh Edition, uses detailed, easy-to-read descriptions and full-color illustrations to help you understand and pinpoint the source of a patient’s signs and symptoms. Improve your diagnostic accuracy and avoid unnecessary testing with this outstanding roadmap to neurologic diagnosis.
- Comprehensive coverage addresses all brain regions, as well as cranial, spinal, and peripheral nerves.
- Detailed discussions cover relevant anatomy, followed by the lesions related to each anatomic feature.
- New material reflects recent developments regarding neuroanatomy and principles of neurologic localization.
- New diagrams and tables, including “Abnormalities of iris structure affecting pupils” and “Drugs and toxins that can cause miosis or mydraisis,” organize key information in an easy-to-understand format.
- Revised illustrations clearly portray the nerve pathways.
