Oppenheimer's Diagnostic Neuropathology: A Practical Manual
Oppenheimers Diagnostic Neuropathology, A Practical Manual has become a modern classic in its field, covering the practical aspects of the work of the neuropathologist. Full of sensible advice and observations often omitted from neuropathology texts, it guides the neuropathologist through the methods available to them when facing diagnostic questions.
The third edition has been fully updated to ensure authoritative coverage of this complex and fast-moving discipline. The experience of the authors is apparent on every page, where superb illustrations combine with an accessible writing style to present complex, academic information that could otherwise prove formidable to trainees and professionals alike.
An essential reference for postgraduate students of neuropathology and histopathology, who need to acquire an understanding of neuropathology as part of their training, this book will also be of interest to trained neuropathologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists.
