Precision medicine in stroke
Descriptif détaillé : Precision medicine in stroke
It starts by explaining and giving general information about precision medicine.
What is the content of "Precision Medicine in Stroke" ?
Current applications in different strokes types (ischemic, haemorrhagic) are presented from diagnosis to treatment. In addition, ongoing research in the field (early stroke diagnosis and estimation of prognosis) is extensively discussed.
The final part provides an in-depth discussion of how different interdisciplinary areas like artificial intelligence, molecular biology and genetics are contributing to this area.
Precision Medicine in Stroke provides a practical approach to each chapter, reinforcing clinical applications and presenting clinical cases.
This book is intended for all clinicians that interact with stroke patients (neurologists, internal medicine doctors, general practitioners, neurosurgeons), students and basic researchers.
Who are the authors of "Precision Medicine in Stroke" ?
