BME 101 Homework #4 The article, "Evaluation of the carpal tunnel based on 3-D reconstruction from MRI," takes a closer look at contrasting wrist postures and their link with carpal tunnel syndrome. The end result of the study led to a groundbreaking result. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be caused from “mechanical impingement or increased hydrostatic pressure.” Both, “mechanical impingement” and “increased hydrostatic pressure,” have been known to correlate with contrasting wrist postures. In result, this argues against the once believed statement that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is common in the workplace involving jobs that take advantage of neutral wrist postures. MRI data was used to show the result of this amazing finding. The carpal tunnel was recreated for a closer look comparing neutral and non-neutral wrist angles. Another purpose of the study was to “evaluate errors associated with off-axis imaging.” Through the assistance of eight volunteers from the university community and the use of an imaging plane, it was
