Neurological Tests

"Semiology is the part of medicine that studies the signs and symptoms of diseases."

 

  • The semiology of the nervous system, aims to enable a correct diagnosis, based on the knowledge of anatomy and the pathologies already studied. We can thus say that semiology has a theoretical part (knowledge of the various neurological syndromes) and a practical part of research with the patient.

  • The importance of the well-done neurological examination with the correct research techniques, so that the complementary tests are, as the name says, subsidies to our diagnosis, not the first condition.
