Thermal sensory deficit of the hands in syringomyelia patients, measured by QST, significantly correlated with the mean fractional anisotropy (FAmean) of the full spinal section at the C3–C4 level. Spearman rank correlation for warmth detection deficit: rho = −0.63, p<0.010; and for cold detection deficit: rho = −0.72, p<0.001.
