New York/Stuttgart – Neuro-ophthalmology, the overlap specialty between neurology and ophthalmology is a concern for ophthalmologists and neurologists. Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated, published by Thieme, bridges the gap between the two fields, covering all the disorders that may affect those parts of the central nervous system devoted to vision.
In this portable atlas, readers will find a compact reference that provides not only an introduction to anatomy physiology and pathophysiology but also an introduction to the fundamentals of neuro-imaging. Together, the authors have combined their 40 years of experience developing concise how-to principles for recognizing signs and symptoms as well as selecting management strategies.
Lavishly illustrated, the book holds just under 1,000 images that visually depict the multiple layers of the human eye and clearly expose all the features of the brain courtesy of neuroimaging.
"We hope that the richness of the illustrations will serve as a reference for practitioners in all the related fields and for our fellow teachers of neuro-opthalmology," states author Valerie Biousse, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology and Neurology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia.
Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated provides the necessary basic background information for primary care specialtists and is a practical reference for ophthalmologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons as well as residents preparing for board examinations.
