Abstract

SummaryOperative and nonoperative management of patients with shoulder symptomatology, particularly when impingement symptoms constitute a component of that presentation, require a comprehensive evaluation of the rotator cuff, and in particular the supraspinatus tendon anatomy and pathology, the morphology of the supraspinatus tendon tunnel, and peritendinous soft tissues. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging represents the only means of providing this information. This article presents a clinicopathologic approach to MR evaluation of supraspinatus tendon and peritendinous pathology and impingement syndrome.
