Review article
Anderson MW, et al. Clin Sports Med. 2012.

Abstract

The rotator cuff is a complex network of interwoven tendons that plays a key role in glenohumeral movement and stability. Cuff abnormality is a common source of shoulder pain, but the clinical presentation is often nonspecific and, as a result, diagnostic imaging, especially magnetic resonance imaging, plays a key role in evaluating these patients. This article reviews imaging modalities available for evaluating the cuff, normal cuff anatomy, and common pathologic conditions that affect it.
