PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to compare MR arthrography in abduction and external rotation (ABER) position with conventional MR arthrography in neutral position for the detection and further classification of anteroinferior labroligamentous lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred and twenty-nine cases of shoulder MR arthrography with subsequent arthroscopy were retrospectively evaluated. All MR arthrograms in ABER position and neutral position were independently assessed by two… Expand
MR arthrography including abduction and external rotation images in the assessment of atraumatic multidirectional instability of the shoulder
TLDR
Combined assessment of redundancy signs on ABER position MR-A allows for accurate differentiation between patients with atraumatic MDI and patients with clinically stable shoulders; measurements on standard imaging planes appear inappropriate. Expand
The diagnostic value of MR arthrography assessment, in patients with traumatic anterior shoulder instability
TLDR
MRA-interpretations of traumatic anterior shoulder instability should be regarded with caution in clinical practice and the experience level of radiologists can affect reproducibility and accuracy. Expand
Does the experience level of the radiologist, assessment in consensus, or the addition of the abduction and external rotation view improve the diagnostic reproducibility and accuracy of MRA of the shoulder?
TLDR
The addition of ABER does not significantly improve overall diagnostic performance, but the radiologist's experience level and consensus assessment do contribute to higher reproducibility and accuracy. Expand
Diagnosis of glenoid labral tears using 3-tesla MRI vs. 3-tesla MRA: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
At 3-T, MRA improved sensitivity for diagnosis of anterior and posterior labral lesions, but reduced specificity in diagnosis of SLAP tears. Expand
Reliability of high-resolution ultrasound and magnetic resonance arthrography of the shoulder in patients with sports-related shoulder injuries
TLDR
High resolution US is a reliable imaging modality for the rotator cuff, the LHB tendon, and the acromioclavicular joint, so for these structures the authors recommend a preference for US over MRA based on its diagnostic accuracy, comfortability, cost effectiveness, and availability. Expand
What can the Radiologist do to Help the Surgeon Manage Shoulder Instability?
TLDR
The appearance of the normal and pathologic glenohumeral joint related to shoulder instability is described, as to why identification of abnormalities, whether normal or pathologic, is important to the surgeon facing a treatment decision. Expand
A feedback protocol improves the diagnostic performance of MR arthrography by experienced musculoskeletal radiologists in patients with traumatic anterior shoulder instability.
TLDR
The implementation of the feedback protocol dramatically improved the reproducibility and accuracy of high field MRA by experienced musculoskeletal radiologist in patients with traumatic anterior shoulder instability. Expand

TLDR
Variance in humeral rotation during shoulder MRA significantly affects capsular measurements, and the implementation of ER positioning enhances the ability to examine capsular changes of the shoulder joint and can assist in the diagnosis of instability. Expand
Evaluation of variations of the glenoid attachment of the inferior glenohumeral ligament by magnetic resonance arthrography
TLDR
Although type I IGHL glenoid attachment is more common, a high prevalence of the type II variation is found, most commonly at the 4 o’clock position. Expand
Radiographic Evaluation of Patients with Anterior Shoulder Instability
TLDR
The goal of this review is to provide common radiographic images and findings in patients with anterior shoulder instability, and to demonstrate the best methods for measuring anterior glenoid bone loss. Expand

Anterior shoulder instability: accuracy of MR arthrography in the classification of anteroinferior labroligamentous injuries.
TLDR
MR arthrography is accurate in enabling classification of acute and chronic anteroinferior labroligamentous injuries, although correct interpretation of Perthes lesions remains difficult. Expand
Is a single direct MR arthrography series in ABER position as accurate in detecting anteroinferior labroligamentous lesions as conventional MR arthography?
TLDR
The results of a single MR arthrography series in ABER position are comparable with those of conventional MR arthroscopy for detecting anteroinferior labroligamentous lesions. Expand
Using abduction and external rotation of the shoulder to increase the sensitivity of MR arthrography in revealing tears of the anterior glenoid labrum.
TLDR
Oblique axial MR arthrograms obtained with the patient's shoulder in the ABER position were significantly more sensitive in revealing AGL tears than were conventional axialMR arthrogrammed with the customer's aim in a neutral position and the shoulder not rotated. Expand
Comparison between Conventional MR Arthrograhphy and Abduction and External Rotation MR Arthrography in Revealing Tears of the Antero-Inferior Glenoid Labrum
TLDR
MR arthrography with the patient's shoulder in the ABER position is more efficient than conventional axial scanning in revealing the degree of tear or defect of the anterior glenoid labrum. Expand
Indirect MR arthrography of anterior shoulder instability in the ABER and the apprehension test positions: a prospective comparative study of two different shoulder positions during MRI using intravenous gadodiamide contrast for enhancement of the joint fluid
TLDR
MRI examination of anterior shoulder instability in the Apprehension test position was more beneficial than examination in the ABER position in visualising capsulolabral and Hill-Sachs lesions when using indirect arthrography. Expand
Glenoid labral tears: prospective evaluation with MRI imaging, MR arthrography, and CT arthrography.
TLDR
MR arthrography was the most sensitive of the three techniques for detecting a detached labral fragment and labral degeneration and afforded the best visualization of the inferior part of the labrum and the inferior glenohumeral ligament. Expand
A meta-analysis of the diagnostic test accuracy of MRA and MRI for the detection of glenoid labral injury
TLDR
Based on the available literature, overall MRA appeared marginally superior to MRI for the detection of glenohumeral labral lesions. Expand
Frequency of glenoid chondral lesions on MR arthrography in patients with anterior shoulder instability.
TLDR
In anterior instability patients, the presence of a HS lesion confers a statistically significant greater likelihood of having a glenoid chondral lesion when compared to patients with instability and no HS. Expand
Imaging findings in the dominant shoulder of throwing athletes: comparison of radiography, arthrography, CT arthrography, and MR arthrography with arthroscopic correlation.
TLDR
MR arthrography with abduction and external rotation was most accurate for diagnosis of rotator cuff and anteroinferior capsulolabral complex tears and should be part of the imaging evaluation of shoulder pain in throwing athletes, owing to the high sensitivity of this imaging technique. Expand
Glenohumeral joint: comparison of shoulder positions at MR arthrography.
TLDR
Although MR arthrography of the glenohumeral joint clearly delineates the biceps-labral complex and glenOHumeral ligaments, external rotation of the shoulder optimizes visualization of the former structures. Expand
