The Oxford American Handbook of Clinical Diagnosis provides concise, practical assistance in interpreting a patient's symptoms, enabling students and clinicians to arrive at a confident diagnosis.
Organized by body system, the Handbook describes the findings that can emerge at each stage of the assessment process. The main differential diagnoses for each finding are given along with evidence that would indicate the diagnosis is correct plus information on further confirmatory tests. Signs and symptoms are presented in at-a-glance tabular format. Imaging studies and EKGs of common clinical problems are provided.
