OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between rotator cuff abnormalities and reduced acromiohumeral distance. MATERIALS AND METHODS Acromiohumeral distance was measured on conventional radiographs and on MR images. Three age- and sex-matched patient groups each including 21 patients were stratified according to acromiohumeral distance on conventional radiographs (group 1, <or= 7 mm; group 2, 8-10 mm; group 3, > 10 mm). Acromiohumeral distance was related to the… CONTINUE READING
