Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzesai.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Left Shoulder.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the left shoulder since 6 months.
M.R.I of the left shoulder was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and GRASS axial images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, Proton and T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is irregularity of the humeral head and of the articular surface of the glenoid with irregularity of the articular cartilage. The subchondral bone in the glenoid shows hypointense areas on all the pulse sequences and this may represent sclerosis. Also seen is synovial thickening (? fibrosed). The anterior and inferior glenoid labrum is frayed. Also seen is slight fraying of the superior and posterior glenoid labrum.
The upper shaft of the left humerus show normal signal intensity. The visualized scapula appears normal. The biceps tendon in the biciptical groove shows normal signal intensity.
The tendinous insertion of the supraspinatus muscle shows normal signal intensity. There is no evidence of fluid in the subdeltoid bursa. There is no evidence of a tear of the supraspinatus muscle. The soft tissues around the left shoulder joint are unremarkable.
The acromio-clavicular joint shows osteophytes along its superior margin.
The visualized axilla is unremarkable.
The MRI features are suggestive of osteoarthritis of the left shoulder joint as described.
