Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review 2017
The ability to accurately interpret and develop independence and proficiency in neuroradiological studies is crucial for all neurologists. Various lesions often produce unusual visual patterns on MRI and CT scans; these narrow the broad list of potential differential diagnoses, thus obviating the need for more invasive tests such as brain biopsies or angiograms.Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review 2017 pdf book helps us to diagnose such cases and give the proper reporting to the surgeons and clinicians.
At the same time, neurologists need to understand the strengths and limitations of these studies and to appreciate the relevance of neuroradiological findings in the more extensive clinical context. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a visual memory of a clinical case is retained and absorbed in a way traditional text readings are not.
Author introduces each topic in this Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review 2017 pdf book with a brief clinical scenario to reinforce this connection, and populate the text with a broad array of neuroimages, including CT,
MRI, MRA, and angiography, to familiarize readers with the interpretation of various modalities, and to
demonstrate how these findings influence treatment.
For the sake of readability, each condition is presented in a uniform and straightforward manner. Every topic begins with a briefcase scenario and image-based diagnosis and is followed by a short introduction to the disorder, clinical presentation, radiographic appearance, diagnostic hallmarks, differential diagnosis, and treatment. Each section also includes selected references for further study.
The bulleted template presents readers with the most relevant and necessary clinical information and deliberately avoids lengthy exposition. The author hopes that this approach will facilitate the use of this Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review 2017 pdf book as a handy reference at the point of care, or as a visual study guide for self-assessment and test review.
