Ultrasonographic and MR Diagnosis of Rotator Cuff Disorders & Shoulder Joint Instability

Dr. Sanjana Doshi, Dr. Asutosh Dave

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role and efficacy of U/S and MR in diagnosis of rotator cuff disorders & shoulder joint instability. PATIENTS & METHODS: This study included 40 patients, who presented with shoulder pain and/or movement limitation. They underwent U/S examination followed by MR examination. The U/S & MR diagnostic criteria for each were analysed, compared & then correlated with orthopedic surgical findings and/or by arthroscopic findings. RESULTS: Out of 40 patients, 20 patients had rotator cuff disorder & 15 patients had shoulder joint instability. Out of 20 patients of rotator cuff disorder, 17 of them (80 %) had rotator cuff tears & 3 (20 %) had tendinosis. Supraspinatous muscle was involved in all the cases.Out of 15 patients of shoulder joint instability, 12 patients had anterior labral tear, 2 patient had superior labral tear & 1 had posterior labral tear. CONCLUSION: Both MR and U/S are valid diagnostic modalities in detecting, characterizing & discriminating the rotator cuff disorders. U/S may have some challenges in patients with shoulder joint instability, while MR provides accurate diagnosis even without contrast.
