Dilley, Andrew, Greening, Jane, Walker-Bone, Karen and Good, Catriona (2011) Magnetic resonance imaging signal hyperintensity of neural tissues in diffuse chronic pain syndromes: A pilot study. Muscle and Nerve, 44 (6). pp. 981-984. ISSN 0148-639XFull text not available from this repository.
In this pilot study we use T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify possible peripheral nerve inflammation in 4 patients with diffuse chronic pain. In all 4 patients, there was an increase in median and ulnar nerve T2 signal intensity at the wrist (P < 0.05 vs. controls). Positive clinical signs of peripheral nerve mechanosensitivity combined with MRI findings suggest that these patients may have an underlying peripheral nerve pathology. Muscle Nerve, 2011
