Identify the best radiological evaluation method for any of the following: Impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tear, and biceps tendon tear. Each diagnostic modality has a particular feature in diagnosing the shoulder lesions such as impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tear, and tear of the biceps tendon of a human musculoskeletal system and its surrounding structures. Ultrasound (US) US is the most efficient imaging method for detecting the shoulder impingement caused by calcified bony deposits, irregularities or abnormalities of the bursa and surrounding structures (Ostlere, 2003). Based on the eighty-two eligible meta-analysis articles conducted by Roy et al. (2014), ultrasonography is highly recommended for patients with full thickness…show more content…
According to Boissonnault (2011), chronic rotator cuff tears are evident in radiology imaging which includes (a) the specific abnormality in the greater tuberosity (b) clear image of the amplitude intermediating the acromion and humeral head and, (c) able to visualize the erosion of the acromion process. The radiography is also significant in determining the abnormal accumulation of fluid in the lesser tuberosity which is related to biceps tendinitis (Churgay, 2009). Otherwise, Arthrography with MRI or CT is an additional adjunct in verifying biceps tendon, lesions, subluxation, rupture and dislocations (Churgay,…show more content…
3D dimensional CT scan would be more efficient if it is the primary method used in determining a shoulder instability of living human being with susceptible glenoid bone deficiency. Rerko et al. (2013) mentioned that for the future investigation, the study should include the full amount or benefits of every imaging studies related to planning before the surgical procedure. Tell us what is wrong with the four diagnostic images of patient's shoulder Patient 1 Patient 2 Patient 3 Patient 4 Question: Which diagnostic imaging is commonly utilize in your rehabilitation setting of a patient with rotator cuff tear? Have you suggested another imaging test that may cause an associated shoulder deficits aside from torn rotator cuff? References Aigner, F., Longato, S., Fritsch, H., & Kralinger, F. (2004).
