Intraoperative Neuromonitoring takes you step by step through the proper protocols for measuring and mapping neural function, emphasizing the correct application of intraoperative recordings for improved surgical outcomes. You will learn how to utilize the very latest neuromonitoring tools, and familiarize yourself with the full range of topics pertaining to intraoperative monitoring in neurosurgery. The authors also present both common and lesser-known techniques for neural assessment, resulting in a stand-alone reference that helps you master any type of neuromonitoring for virtually every kind of procedure.
