    The neurologic exam as a diagnostic tool gained mythical proportions in the pre-CT/MRI era when great clinicians could pinpoint a lesion in the nervous system with often astounding accuracy. Today, with the availability of modern imaging techniques, the neurologic exam remains a critical way station in the clinical decision-making process.   The examination uses tools such as a tuning fork, flashlight, reflex hammer, and a tool for examining the eye.
