The majority of the diagnoses involving ulnar wrist pain may be established with a detailed history-taking, thorough physical examination, and standard radiography. When a diagnosis cannot be established with the standard methods, more advanced diagnostic modalities should be considered. Selection of appropriate treatment modalities easily follows the establishment of a correct diagnosis.
