Glenohumeral instability: evaluation using MR arthrography of the shoulder

Skeletal Radiol. 1999 Jul;28(7):365-82. doi: 10.1007/s002560050533.


In the setting of glenohumeral instability or when internal derangement of the shoulder joint is suspected, MR arthrography has been demonstrated to be an accurate diagnostic imaging technique. Knowledge of the complex anatomy of the shoulder and its variations is essential in order to maximize diagnostic accuracy.
