The New Edition of this respected reference delivers complete, practical guidance on current electrodiagnostic techniques and their clinical applications for investigating problems of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Completely revised and updated, this 5th Edition provides state-of-the-art knowledge on electroencephalography, electromyography, nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, polysomnography, and electronystagmography.
Deepen your understanding of the principles, scope, limitations, diagnostic importance, prognostic relevance, and complications for each technique.
Visually grasp the technical and practical aspects of electrodiagnostic tests with almost 800 charts, figures, and tables.
Rely on the knowledge, experience, and perspective of renowned expert Dr. Michael J. Aminoff and an international team of contributors comprised of a virtual "who’s who" of clinical neurophysiology.
"It is a comprehensive review of the latest understanding of neurophysiology techniques and how neurophysiology relates to clinical function. This edition continues to delight and impress. The topics and updates are spot on. This is an essential title that all neurologists and neuroscience professionals must have on their bookshelves." - Joseph I Sirven, MD(Mayo Clinic Arizona) Doody 5 star rating!
"Aminoff’s Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology has become known as the classic textbook of electrodiagnostic methodology…The list of collaborators reads like a Who’s Who of clinical neurophysiology. Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology belongs in every clinical neurophysiology laboratory and should be easily accessible to residents and students. Academic neurologists and physiatrists and those in clinical practice - both those who use these techniques and those who simply refer their patients for such studies - should find this text a valuable reference source as well." - JAMA, September 2005
Includes a new chapter on Magnetoencephalography that discusses the use of this newer modality for the evaluation of patients with disorders such as epilepsy.
