Small Animal Neuroanatomic Lesion Localization Practice Book
Neuroanatomic lesion localization - detecting where a neurologic problem arises - is key when presented with a dog or cat with signs of neurologic disease. The correct neuroanatomic lesion localization will drive veterinarians towards an appropriate list of differential diagnoses and help lead the client towards applicable diagnostic investigation. Neuroanatomic lesion localization is the first step when managing any pet with signs of neurologic disease. Despite its importance, it remains a challenge for veterinary students, residents, and practitioners in their daily practice.
Laid out in a case-based format and workbook style to guide the reader through neuroanatomic lesion localization, this book:
- Covers the whole process from the animal's examination through to diagnosis;
- Covers localizations of intercranial disease, spinal cord disease, neuromuscular disease and multifocal disease;
- Provides blank practice sheets to encourage the reader to work through cases, testing and consolidating their knowledge multiple times.
