Summary This book offers clear, detailed guidance on all aspects of prognostic evaluation in patients who have been diagnosed with a neurological illness or have been involved in an accident with neurological consequences. It covers the full range of disorders of central and peripheral nervous system, providing accurate prognostic estimates and addressing relevant clinical issues, differential diagnosis, and the role of imaging. The volume is practically oriented and designed for use on a daily basis when assessing prognosis and discussing the outcome with patients, their families, and other interested parties. It will support patient-doctor partnerships by ensuring professional answers to patients' and doctors' questions and by promoting realistic expectations of the effect of medical interventions. In addition, it will enable doctors, lawyers, and other professionals to understand relevant issues when an estimate of prognosis and life expectancy is the subject of legal dispute
