Screening for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.
At this time there are no screening tests or screening guidelines to detect carpal tunnel syndrome before symptoms begin.
