Hooshang Hooshmand, M.D. and Eric M. Phillips

Neurological Associates Pain Management Center

Vero Beach, Florida

Abstract. Traditionally, the use of scintigraphic triphasic bone scans (STBS) has been the most commonly applied test of choice for the diagnosis of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in the past three decades. Whereas earlier, literature has described the STBS as highly sensitive and specific in establishing the diagnosis of CRPS (1).

Descriptors. complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), electromyography (EMG), infrared thermal imaging (ITI), laser evoked potential (LEP), nerve conduction velocity (NCV), quantitative sudomotor axon reflex test (QSART), quantitative thermal sensory evoked response test (QST), scintigraphic triphasic bone scan (STBS)

We hope  that this article will be helpful to you.

All our best!
