Abstract

The Use of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to Demonstrate the Reflection Pulley of the Shoulder

Michael Meng, DC, RMSK

Musculoskeletal ultrasound, static and dynamic imaging can be a useful modality to assess the rotator cuff interval, A clinical significant anatomic region of the shoulder. Due to anatomic location the rotator cuff interval is difficult to assess via MRI imaging, clinical testing and even through arthroscopic techniques. Without radiation, equipment accessibility, low cost, and low patient burden Ultrasound should be considered in anterior shoulder pain patients.
