Studies were conducted using liquid crystal thermography (FlexiTherm) and electronic thermography for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Studies were also conducted to differentiate carpal tunnel syndrome from peripheral neurovascular injuries. Ninety patients were included in the study, with an average follow-up time of 24 months. Fifty patients also had electric studies for comparison and contrast. Thermal patterns of carpal tunnel syndrome showed a decreased vascular heat emission… CONTINUE READING
