Description

This ExamCard provides a complete examination of the shoulder with gadolinium arthrography.

 

Dr. Sintzoff, a radiologist specialized in musculoskeletal radiology, applies this ExamCard for all shoulder MR arthrography. The ExamCard contains basic sequences like T2 SPIR or T1 SPIR, but in addition, Dr. Sintzoff routinely uses 3D Balanced FFE (B-FFE) and 3D THRIVE combined with multiplanar reformatting to show the structures of the shoulder in high detail.

 

The 3D acquisitions with reformats are particularly useful for the analysis of the labrum, ligaments and other capsular structures, chondral lesions and also small rotator cuff tears.
