Abstract:Ultrasonography is capable of depicting these nerves morphological information, with respect to exact location, course, and extent. QST is suitable for early diagnosis of DPN, and abnormal QST is an indication of lower extremity nerve decompression for DPN. The joint use of QST and NCV testing helps surgeons to grasp the timing of surgery. High-resolution ultrasound, QST and NCV testing can also be used as an outcome index for surgical treatment.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
