To ascertain the dynamic changes between the median nerve and flexor tendons in the carpal tunnel, MR images of 16 wrists in eight volunteers were studied in flexion, extension, and neutral positions. T1-weighted axial images, 600/20 (TR/TE) were obtained with the wrists straight, extended at 45 degree, and flexed at 45 degree. Each scan was evaluated with regard to positional changes of the median nerve and flexor tendons in the carpal tunnel as well as alterations in nerve shape. In the… CONTINUE READING
