Name of the Patient : Abc Xylmn / M / 69 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Shoulder.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O difficulty in lifting the RUE since 2 months.
M.R.I of the right shoulder was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and GRASS axial images.
4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, Proton and T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is complete tear of the supraspinatous tendon of the right shoulder joint with retraction of the tendon and muscle belly.
Minimal fluid is seen within the right shoulder joint, subacromial bursa and subdeltoid region and along the bicipital tendon in the bicipital groove.
There are subtle hyperintense areas on the T2 Weighted and Gradient images within the region of the tuberosities of the right humerus. These are hypointense to the marrow on the T1 Weighted images and would represent degenerative changes (?? avulsion).
The head and upper shaft of the right humerus show normal signal intensity. The visualized scapula appears normal. The glenoid labrum is unremarkable. The biceps tendon in the biciptical groove shows normal signal intensity.
The articular cartilage of the head of the right humerus appears normal.
- 2 - Scan-00000
There is no obvious bone erosion or destruction seen.
The acromio-clavicular joint shows osteophytes along its superior margin.
The visualized axilla is unremarkable.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Complete tear of the supraspinatous tendon of the right shoulder joint.
2. Minimal fluid within the right shoulder joint, subacromial and subdeltoid bursa and along the bicipital tendon in the bicipital groove.
3. Altered signal in the region of the tuberosities of the humerus would represent degenerative changes (?? avulsion).
