Many disorders of the shoulder complex are accompanied by changes in the pattern of scapular motion which is difficult to measure except radiographically. In order to study the three-dimensional motion of the scapula which accompanies arm movements, a technique has been developed using a three-pointed locater which can be applied over three bony landmarks - the acromial angle, the inferior angle, and the root of the scapular spine. The spatial orientation of the locater relative to the trunk… CONTINUE READING
