A physician should have a consistent and specific methodology approach when it comes to reading an MRI, this will ultimately limit the amount of key structures that you miss or misinterpret. There are many reasons for shoulder pain, most commonly due to rotator cuff and labral pathologies. However, whether the patient is having acute or chronic shoulder pain, radiographs are usually the first test that can give a straightforward reading and accurate outcome of what is going on with the patient. If more information is needed, an MRI is the next step as it can reveal other less likely etiologies. This presentation outlines the process of how to order a shoulder MRI, when to order a MR Arthrogram, and which test is better to use. Dr. Vincent also includes various imaging techniques, normal anatomy, and shoulder pathologies.
