The use of electrodiagnostic techniques in neurology and physical medicine is rapidly expanding. Technological advances have made certain procedures not only feasible but desirable in the routine evaluation of many patients.

This excellent book uniquely fulfills the demand for a single comprehensive and authoritarian monograph on the various procedures, i. e., strength duration curves, electromyography, nerve conduction, etc. The material is up to date, well presented, and in very usable form. A book like this was greatly needed (unlike many books written today ) and this need has been most satisfactorily answered.

This book is recommended without reservation and it should be in every laboratory where electrical testing is done. It is also an excellent reference for those physicians in neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, and physical medicine who need to be aware of the potentialities of these methods.
