Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine Board Review, 1st Edition
Questions and answers are written in board-style formats, including case scenarios, high-yield facts, and questions on waveforms, pathology, and ultrasound images.
Content covers all topics from the board exams, including genetics, clinical trials, and newly FDA-approved medications.
Explanations are provided for both correct and incorrect answers and include numerous supporting tables, diagrams, and images, in addition to specially highlighted content such as high-yield facts, mnemonics, and key points.
An ideal study resource for the ABPN and ABEM/AANEM neuromuscular electrodiagnostic medicine and clinical neurophysiology boards, as well as for physical medicine and rehabilitation boards and MOC exams, and during neuromuscular/EMG rotation and training.
Interactive quiz functionality is available online.
An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud.
