The technique for ultrasound imaging of the rotator cuff is described and the normal anatomy of the region is illustrated. Ultrasonography of the shoulder appears to easily and rapidly display normal rotator cuff anatomy. 
Ultrasound of the rotator cuff with MRI and anatomic correlation.
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to illustrates that the standardized high-resolution US examination of the shoulder covers the entire rotator cuff and correlates with MR imaging and anatomic sections.
Rotator Cuff Ultrasonography: Diagnostic Capabilities
TLDR
The low cost, convenience, and lack of risk make dynamic ultrasonography an excellent imaging tool for evaluating the biceps, subscapularis, infraspinatus, teres minor, and suprasp inatus tendons.
Ultrasonography of the Rotator Cuff and Infant Hip
TLDR
Ultrasonography of the shoulder and infant hip appears to easily and rapidly display normal anatomy and the normal anatomy of the region is illustrated.
Ultrasound Examination of the Painful Shoulder
TLDR
Although a correlation of 75% was found between the ultrasonographic and angiographic examinations, in cases where the area of the cuff tear could be adequately visualized with ultrasound, correlation rose to 90%.
The Demographic and Morphological Features of Rotator Cuff Disease
Background: Very little comparative information is available regarding the demographic and morphological characteristics of asymptomatic and symptomatic rotator cuff tears. This information is
Normal Ultrasound Anatomy of Tendons
The sonographic examination of superficial tendons is best performed with the use of (a) a standoff pad, which should be thin because the transducer is of high frequency and short focused, (b)
Sonography for diagnosis of rotator cuff tear. Comparison with observations at surgery in 58 shoulders.
TLDR
Among the 34 cases that proved to be normal at surgery, 9 had positive ultrasonograms, and a cautious attitude towards ultrasonography for evaluation of the rotator cuff seems appropriate.
Sonography of Supraspinatus Tendon Abnormalities in the Neutral Versus Crass and Modified Crass Positions
The purpose of this study was to investigate how well the neutral arm position correlates with the Crass and modified Crass positions in sonographic evaluation of supraspinatus tendon abnormalities.
Unsuspected sonographic findings in patients with posttraumatic shoulder complaints
To prospectively assess the frequency of abnormal sonographic findings in patients with posttraumatic shoulder pain and/or disability in whom ultrasound (US) was not considered and to assess the
Sonographic detection of rotator cuff tears.
TLDR
Shoulder sonography can provide a noninvasive means of screening patients with suspected rotator cuff tears and predictive value of a negative sonogram was 95%.

Grey scale ultrasonography and arthrography in evaluation of popliteal cysts.
TLDR
Knees in 25 patients suspected of having a popliteal cyst were examined by ultrasonography followed immediately by arthrography, and soft tissue changes and attenuation of the distal margin of the cysts were shown by ultrasound.
