HYPOTHESIS Because a 4-dimensional CT scan (4D CT) is able to provide a moving 3-dimensional (3D) image in real time in patients with snapping scapula syndrome, a 4D CT scan should be able to demonstrate bony impingement of the scapula on the posterior thorax. This study was performed to determine if 4D CT scans aid the clinician in defining the size and location of the scapular bone causing impingement in patients with snapping scapula syndrome.
