OBJECTIVE To compare ultrasound measurement of median nerve cross-sectional area (CSA) at different anatomical landmarks and to assess the value of power Doppler signals within the median nerve for diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). METHODS A prospective study of 135 consecutive patients with suspected CTS undergoing two visits within 3 months. A(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the prognostic value of B-mode and Power Doppler (PD) ultrasound of the median nerve for the short- and long-term clinical outcomes of patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). METHODS Prospective study of 135 patients with suspected CTS seen 3 times: at baseline, then at short-term (3 months) and long-term (15-36 months)(More)
Carcinomas of the adrenal cortex show a high degree of malignancy. Although one would expect their endocrinal activity to permit early diagnosis, reports of complete cures are rare, despite radical removal of the primary tumour. We are reporting on the case of a boy, born in 1965, who 12 years after removal of a carcinoma from the left adrenal cortex may be(More)
Our and several previous studies demonstrated a high diagnostic value of ultrasound for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). 2 Among the various abnormalities within the carpal tunnel reported, the increase of the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the median nerve is the most commonly studied ultrasound abnormality. Additionally, ultrasound allows the identification(More)
