  • The objective of this paper is to assess the sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value (PV) of stress infrared telethermography (IRT) in the Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Type I (CRPS-I). One hundred eighty-five consecutive patients (47 men, 138 women) with 205 pairs of chronically painful limbs (upper, lower, or both) were examined by pain specialists in neurology, physiatry, and anesthesia, who then reached a consensus diagnosis. A clinical diagnosis of CRPS-I required at least two of… CONTINUE READING
