The purpose of this study was to document the ultrasonographic measurement differences in median nerve size between patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and controls, and to correlate these findings with electrophysiological stage and motor unit number estimation (MUNE), thereby allowing us to test the validity of ultrasound as a diagnostic modality for assessing the severity of CTS. High-resolution sonography and electrophysiological studies were performed on 41 wrists of 27 patients and… CONTINUE READING
