Abstract

The objective of this study is to estimate the reference values for the upper limb peripheral nerves in adults.

The demographics and physical characteristics of 69 adult healthy volunteers were evaluated and recorded. In addition, the side to side differences of the estimated reference values and their correlations with the age, weight, height, and body mass index (BMI) were evaluated.

Cross-sectional area reference values of the upper limb nerves did not correlate with height; however, they correlated with age, weight, and BMI in some scanned sites.

The data obtained in this study could be helpful in future diagnosis of peripheral nerve disorders of the upper limb.
