Sonographic Tissue Morphology in Early Stage Work-Related Median Nerve Pathology

Principal Investigator: Shawn C. Roll

Project Period: 9/30/15 – 9/29/19
Funding Source: Centers for Disease Control: National Institutes of Occupational Safety and Health
Award Number: 1 R01 OH010665-01A1
Total Award: $2,324,186

The goal of this grant is to evaluate the impacts of intensive hand activity on sonographic measurements of tissue morphology, discomfort and occupational performance in a longitudinal study to develop a predictive model of morphologic progression of pathology and screening techniques for early detection of median nerve injury in the workplace.
