Shoulder Arthrography

  • Murray K. Dalinka
Part of the Comprehensive Manuals in Radiology book series (CM RADIOLOGY)


The chronically painful shoulder is a frequent cause of severe patient morbidity. Pain and restriction of motion can be caused by a multiplicity of soft tissue abnormalities in and about the shoulder (22, 23). The clinical examination is often nonspecific and yields an imprecise diagnosis such as bursitis.
