El propósito de los exámenes de detección es el diagnóstico y tratamiento oportunos. Por lo general, los exámenes de revisión se realizan a personas sin síntomas, pero que pueden tener un riesgo elevado de padecer ciertas enfermedades o condiciones.

Pautas para la detección

Los antecedentes y la evaluación física se utilizan para detectar el síndrome del túnel carpiano.

El estudio por electrodiagnóstico es el más aceptado para detectar el síndrome del túnel carpiano.

En este momento no existen pruebas o guías de detección especiales ampliamente aceptadas para detectar el síndrome de túnel carpiano antes de que los síntomas comiencen.
