Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Imaging of the labrum can be done by MRI, MR a rthrography, CT arthrography, and ultrasonography. Among these imaging modalities, MR arthrography is the best in depicting the lesion of the labrum such as a Bankart lesion and SLAP lesion. Various methods to improve the accuracy of MR arthrography have been introduced such as radial sequences of MRI, arm position in abduction and external rotation, or application of downward traction to the arm.
