  • Figure 1
    MR Arthrogram images
     

    High axial image shows a partial tear involving the superior glenohumeral ligament.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Axial image shows a large superior labral tear noted with avulsion of the labrum from the glenoid rim.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Axial image shows a torn and retracted long head of biceps tendon.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Inferior axial image shows a frayed and torn long head of biceps tendon in the bicipital groove.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Coronal image shows a large superior labral tear with near complete absence of the labrum.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Coronal image shows a large tear in the coracohumeral ligament.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Sagittal image shows the rotator interval tear and the superior labral tear with contrast between the labrum and the glenoid.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Arthrography; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Sagittal image shows a torn long head of biceps tendon in the bicipital groove.
