OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess the accuracy of gray-scale and color Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 206 wrists in 151 patients with a clinical suspicion of carpal tunnel syndrome were examined with high-resolution sonography using a 7-15-MHz linear array transducer. The presence of median nerve swelling, edema, and flattening and increased bowing of the flexor retinaculum was evaluated with gray… CONTINUE READING
