Imaging Studies for Adhesive Capsulitis

The evaluation of a patient with adhesive capsulitis is not complete without an appropriate series of plain radiographs. True glenohumeral anterior-posterior views, along with axillary, scapular outlet and acromioclavicular views are considered necessary to exclude other shoulder girdle conditions which result in pain and stiffness. These films may often reveal osteopenia, but should not show […]

Imaging Evaluation

X-ray films are an integral part of the work up and necessary to gain additional information. The views that are the most valuable are anterior-posterior (AP) view, supraspinatous outlet view, and axillary lateral. A 15-degree cephalic view of the AC joint, and an AP view with humeral internal rotation can also be helpful.

It is […]

The Thoracolumbar Spine

Key Points

The majority of thoracolumbar spine injuries arising from low-velocity sports usually are less catastrophic than some of the athletic injuries involving the more vulnerable cervical spine. The thoracic spinal cord is protected by the relatively larger and less mobile thoracic vertebra and rib cage. The sports physician may be required to assess for […]

Diagnostic Principles

Acceptable results are most likely to be achieved by correct treatment based upon an accurate diagnosis; this requires a careful history and a thorough clinical examination. With the development of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the evaluation of tendon injuries has improved dramatically. This imaging technique not only gives a correct diagnosis, but also permits assessment […]

MRI of the Body (Knee, Back, Shoulder)

What is MRI of the Body?

MRI of the knee

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

MR imaging uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other […]
