Normal anatomy, variants and pitfalls on shoulder MRI


Rudez, J; Zanetti, M (2008). Normal anatomy, variants and pitfalls on shoulder MRI. European Journal of Radiology, 68(1):25-35.

Abstract

MR imaging of the shoulder is widely used for assessment of impingement and instability-related clinical conditions. The following review article demonstrates the normal anatomy, variations and classical pitfalls. In addition to classical pitfalls (sublabral hole, sublabral recess, Buford complex) the authors focus on a number of normal, bony, cartilaginous, ligamentous and tendinous structures that can simulate disease at the shoulder. In addition, ways to distinguish these pitfalls from true shoulder abnormalities are shown.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
