The aim of this study is to approach the possibilities of stimulated infrared thermography to the carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosis. Eleven patients were studied. Six of them were affected by the carpal tunnel syndrome. The five others were healthy. The study consists in exciting the patients’ hands and in analyzing their thermal response. The infrared thermograms obtained show that the hands infected by the carpal tunnel syndrome give a different thermal response.
Key words: Carpal tunnel syndrome / diagnosis / stimulated infrared thermography / non-destructive testing / median nerve
