Diagnostic shortcomings of magnetic resonance arthrography to evaluate partial rotator cuff tears in adolescents.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent evidence suggests an increase in the incidence of partial articular-sided rotator cuff tears in adolescent athletes, but the accuracy of diagnostic studies has not been previously assessed in this cohort. This study was performed to assess the ability of magnetic resonance imaging with arthrography (MRIa) to diagnose partial rotator cuff… (More)
