Migraine: Manifestations, Pathophysiology, and administration, moment variation, is a far extended, up-dated monograph that focuses intimately on migraine's diversified adaptations, its pathophysiology, and its therapy. Authored through a clinician/scientist who himself suffers from migraine, the book's premise is that the scientific value of migraine and its therapy are intelligible provided that the doctor is familiar with the anatomical, physiological, and pharmacological components underlying either head discomfort and the opposite manifestations of migraine.

Other Imaging Techniqu es More recent advances in posterior segment imaging have employed noncontact techniques that do not re quire the use of imaging dyes. Addit ional stud ies using each of these modalities are needed to clarify their place in the routine clinical care of patients. Optica l Coherence Tomog raphy Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noni nvasive, noncontact imaging modality that produces micrometer-resolution, cross-sectio nal images of ocular tiss ue. OCT is based on imaging reflected light.
In rubella retinopathy, the RPE can be diffusely altered, but the EOG is normal. The EOG is most specific as a test for Best vitelliform dystrophy and thus is useful in evaluating any yellow lesions or macular scars that might be manifestat ions of this condi tion. Its use in evaluating diffuse RPE diseases is less clear, because patients who show an ab normal EOG usually show obvio us fun dus changes that are the main basis for the diagnosis. Some authors feel the EOG is a sensitive indicator of early ch loroqu ine toxicity, but others argue that mass electrical responses li ke the EOG or ERG are not sensitive to early toxicity.
