The electroencephalogram (EEG) is an essential tool in the diagnosis of neurologic disorders. Now in its second edition, Atlas of EEG Patterns has been fully revised and updated to include an even broader array of both typical and atypical EEG pattern samples to help you recognize telltale abnormalities. With this resource, trainees will learn from actual tracings how best to identify an abnormal EEG result, and what clinical condition that result suggests. Experienced neurologists will also find the book useful as a quick consult or when trying to distinguish an abnormal result from a technical problem or visual artifact.
The second edition features a new and simple digital application that enables a user to classify an EEG pattern and to see a relevant example. An extensive table guides readers from easily recognized EEG features to samples of representative tracings. Hundreds of EEG tracings from an established EEG laboratory let readers sharpen interpretive skills using real-world examples.
