Assessing Central Nervous System Symptoms

Show Summary Details

Preview

The major value and primary application of clinical neurophysiology is in the assessment and characterization of neurologic disease. Selection of appropriate studies for the problem of an individual patient requires a careful clinical evaluation to determine possible causes of the patient’s symptoms. The nature of the symptoms and the conclusions of the clinical evaluation are the best guides to appropriate use of clinical neurophysiologic testing.
