Article in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine

An article written by the physicians and interns at Stetson Powell Orthopedics and Sports Medicine can be found in the latest edition of the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine. The article compares low-field and high-field MRI scanners with regard to their accuracy in diagnosing shoulder pathology. Accuracy was measured by comparing imaging diagnoses with intraoperative findings for both types of MRI scanners. It was found that low-field MRI is an accurate tool for the evaluation of partial- and full-thickness rotator cuff tears; however, it is less effective in diagnosing SLAP lesions.
