Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purposes of this review are to summarize the indications for MDCT arthrography of the shoulder, highlight the features of MDCT acquisition, and describe the normal and abnormal MDCT arthrographic appearances of the shoulder.

CONCLUSION:

MDCT arthrography is a valid alternative for shoulder imaging of patients with contraindications to MRI or after failed MRI. MDCT arthrography is accurate for assessment of a variety of shoulder abnormalities and, with further validation, may become the imaging test of choice for evaluation of the postoperative shoulder.
