Informal Description of the Clinical Discipline

Neurology is the field of medicine involved with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the nervous system, i.e., the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerve and muscle.  Patients with neurological disease present with a wide variety of difficult, challenging and compelling problems.  Practicing this specialty, the physician performs comprehensive and detailed neurological histories and examinations, and performs and interprets a variety of neurodiagnostic studies, including lumbar puncture, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, angiography, myelography, electroencephalography, and neurosonologic exams.  Careful clinical analysis of patients with nervous system disease allows for localization and characterization of the underlying abnormalities.  Most importantly, treatment of neurological disease has advanced significantly in recent years, and the number and scope of illnesses now amenable to treatment has been increasing at an extraordinarily rapid rate.
