Complete Physiological Exam:
All images revealed contralateral symmetry except:
RF: Ave. temp. zone #1: 77.9°F.
Ave. temp. zone #2: 70.7°F.
LF: Ave. temp. zone #1: 74.2° F.
Ave. temp. zone #2: 65.0°F.
Hypothermic areas encompass entire distal limb of LF. Hypothermic dermatome patterns start just distal to the carpus and extend distally to include the entire structure of the foot.
