Pocket Tutor Neuroimaging
Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with ‘on the go’, at a highly-affordable price that puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment.
Topics reflect information needs stemming from today’s integrated undergraduate and foundation courses:
- Common presentations
- Investigation options (e.g. ECG, imaging)
- Clinical and patient-orientated skills (e.g. examinations, history-taking)
The highly-structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the ‘fear factor’ associated with day-to-day clinical training, and provides a detailed resource that students and junior doctors can carry in their pocket.
- Highly-affordable price and convenient pocket-size format
- Logical, building-block approach to content: initial chapter on the principles of neuroimaging, followed by focus on understanding normal and abnormal images. Subsequent chapters describe specific disorders
- Clinical disorders are illustrated by high-quality images with accompanying text that clearly identifies the defining features of the image
- Focuses on the conditions medical students and junior doctors are most likely to see
