This chapter describes the methods used by clinicians to gain insight into the structure and the functions of a patient's nervous system. Computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are the methods of choice to demonstrate the anatomical structure and deviations thereof, such as trauma, stroke, tumour, or inflammation. They help visualize where a lesion is localized. All the other methods mentioned in the chapter are used to examine the extent of functioning of parts of the nervous system.

Keywords:   computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, neuropsychological assessments, trauma, stroke, tumour, inflammation
