A study in Academic Radiology found that cross-sectional area was the ultrasound feature with the highest accuracy, specificity and sensitivity in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome, and combining CSA with median nerve stiffness at either of the measured sites and color Doppler imaging further increased diagnostic accuracy for carpal tunnel syndrome.
