OBJECTIVE Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), evaluate the correlation of acromion angulation with thickening of the coracoacromial ligament (CAL) and narrowing of the subacromial space resulting in impingement upon the rotator cuff tendons. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-nine shoulder MRI studies performed on a 3T scanner were retrospectively analyzed by two blinded independent reviewers. Measurements of the acromion angle (delta angle), CAL thickness and distance between the CAL and… CONTINUE READING
