2023-01-10HandLab receives grant on machine learningThe Hand Research Laboratory has been awarded $140,425 from the UArizona Office of Research, Innovation & Impact to advance the use of ultrasound imaging in evaluating the carpal arch. Working with Xiaoxiao Sun, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, Dr. Zong-Ming Li is developing an algorithm that applies machine learning to carpal arch images to automatically identify and extract data embedded in the images. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common condition of nerve entrapment, experienced by some 4% of U.S. adults per data from the Centers for Disease Control. The condition results when the median nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel becomes compressed, causing numbness, tingling and/or pain in the hand.
