Information relating to the treatment and diagnosis of Acoustic Neuroma

  

            Recent Research (PubMed.gov)

     PubMed.gov has been called the “true liberator of medical knowledge in the National Library of Medicine [Bethesda, MD].” Virtually all published research articles from the thousands of professionally recognized and peer-reviewed journals are archived on this website. PubMed comes with a powerful search engine that will quickly identify by topic virtually all research reports.

Resources

The NLM has zealously pursued the goal of making medical information free, open and easily tapped. Articles in the ANA/NJ newsletter are footnoted to encourage readers to take a look on their own at the important research reports about acoustic neuroma that are available in the medical journals. Simply go online to www.pubmed.gov and use the search engine there to call upthe abstracts of reports cited in the newsletter or in other materials you have read.  PubMed will also direct your attention to related reports. For some reports, PubMed will provide a link to a free full-text copy. Reading the full text of any research report is always to be preferred. Most times, however, PubMed will only provide links for ordering copies from reprint companies (at much too high a price, we think). Better would be to ask the Interlibrary Loan Service at your local library to order a copy of the report you wish to read in full. There may or may not be a small charge.
