Description 

With over 800 illustrations, the majority in full color, Clinical Neurology reflects the major contribution of neuroradiology to medical neurology and combines the advantages of a color atlas and a textbook. Each condition is described on a page or a spread of pages, using a structured text and integrating color photographs, radiographs, and line diagrams.

The book is both comprehensive and practical, with material organized according to the presenting complaint of the patient or according to a logical pathophysiologic and anatomic classification scheme. For each disorder there is a clear definition, discussion of etiology, clinical features, and investigations. The text is concise and, where appropriate, a bulleted topic format is used, making information easy to retrieve. High-quality illustrations present anatomic drawings, radiographs, and pathologic specimens. This approach logically leads the reader through different clinical scenarios from presentation to diagnosis and treatment.

This volume is must reading for all neurologists and neuroradiologists its clarity of presentation also makes it an ideal reference work for residents in these specialties. Program or course directors will find this text extremely useful, as it can also serve as the primary source for course work in advanced clinical neuroscience.

Highlights of this outstanding clinical tool:

  • a unique blend of neurology and neuroradiology, with over 800 illustrations, many in full color
  • combines the advantages of a color atlas and comprehensive neurology text
  • clearly written by two outstanding clinicians and educators, with a consistency of style and focus

Editorial Review(s) 

"This text fulfills the need for a ready reference for every-day use. It is succinct and useful for both the beginner and the experienced physician." -- Archives of Neurology

"The exquisite illustrations and ease of readability are [this book's] strong points... [It] is recommended to students, residents, and practicing neurologists interested in a general review or a quick reference of high clinical utility and general neurological information. Other disciplines such as neuroradiology and neurosurgery might find this text useful as well." -- Annals of Neurology

"Alluring from the first idle flick through its glossy pages, this [textbook] makes a profound and immediate visual impact. It is sumptuously illustrated: 'a speaking picture, with this end: to teach and to delight'... Engaging keenness permeates the book and will undoubtedly project it into the neurological bestseller list." -- Advances in Clinical Neuroscience & Rehabilitation

"Topics are easily located and helpful advice well-summarized. The format of the books offers practical suggestions for work-up and differential diagnosis with wonderful illustrations." -- Journal of Neuro-Opthalmology

"Overall, the book is an amazing tour-de-force of clinical neurology. The two authors bring their expertise in their respective fields to create an excellent and quite useful midsized neurology textbook. In comparison to books in its class, this book fares better in respect to its conciseness and the amazing illustrating. This book is a welcome, worthy addition to the field, and will find great use in the libraries of residents, professors of clinical neurology, and practicing neurologists."--- Divine, Inc.

"...very well produced and takes a new approach to the subject, it makes the learning of neurology more easily structured than is possible from many publications. The quality of the illustrations is outstanding." -- Doctors.net
