RSI

Relative Strength Index

A measure of the performance of a stock relative to its industry or the performance of an industry relative to the market as a whole. A stock (or industry) outperforming its industry (or market) for a given period of time has a relative strength index value above 1; this is seen as a bullish sign for that stock (or industry). On the other hand, a stock (or industry) underperforming its industry (or market) for a given period of time has a relative strength index value under 1; this is seen as a bearish sign.

The aim of this study is to calculate the agreement between ultrasonography and nerve conduction studies in assessment of severity of carpal tunnel syndrome. The results could be used to evaluate CTS using ultrasonography only, especially in our health care facilities where the facility of NCS is not readily available, thus providing prompt diagnosis, early treatment and reducing patient's morbidity.
USG evaluation using cross sectional area of median nerve at wrist has similar accuracy as electrophysiological studies for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. So, USG evaluation can be used instead of nerve conduction studies which is more time consuming and costly for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome.
