Abstract Objective: To establish peripheral nerve cross-sectional area (CSA) reference values (absolute values, measures of asymmetry, and measures of focality) for healthy individuals in Brazil. Materials and Methods: Sixty-six healthy volunteers underwent high-resolution ultrasound of the peripheral nerves. We obtained CSA measurements for three peripheral nerves, at specific locations: the median nerve, in the carpal tunnel (MT); the ulnar nerve, at the cubital tunnel site (UT) and at the pre-tunnel site (UPT); and the common...
