To compare to type and size of rotator cuff tear (RCT) in the transverse view before and after arthro-3D sonography.
Total 24 cases with rotator cuff tear were diagnosed according to ultrasonographic finding. All of patients were performed by a posterior-lateral approach for sono-guided intra-articular injection and underwent by both before and after arthro 3D sonogrpahy. We measured size (transverse, longitudinal, area) of RCT on the transverse scan in search of the largest lesion and the difference to type and size of RCT after arthrography.
3D ultrasonography detected full-thickness tear in 18 cases, partial-thickness tear in 6 cases before arthro-3D sonograhy. Change in the diagnosis of rotator cuff tear after arthro -3D sonogrphy; 3 partial-thickness tear were diagnosed as full-thickness tear. The size (transverse, longitudinal, area) of RCT was increased significantly after arthro -3D sonography compared with that before arthro 3D sonography.
Arthro-3D sonography is useful for evaluation the configuration of RCT. Using this method, we can provide the objective and steric image of RCT. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2010; 34: 362-367)
