|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
|Official Title:||Ultrasound Evaluation of the Rotator Cable and Associated Structures.|
- To determine if Ultrasound can identify the rotator cable and the associated structures. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
|Study Start Date:||September 2005|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2013|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Patients with shoulder pain who were clinically referred to Ultrasound for evaluation
Other: ultrasound of painful shoulder
Patients who have a shoulder that is painful or has limited movement who were referred to Radiology will have an ultrasound exam of their shoulder.
Active Comparator: 2
healthy volunteers who do not have shoulder pain
Healthy volunteers who do not have pain or limited movement will have an ultrasound exam of their shoulder.
The purpose of this study is to document normal and abnormal appearances of various shoulder structures (rotator cable and rotator cuff).
This study will recruit healthy volunteers and patients who have been referred to Radiology for a symptomatic shoulder (a shoulder that is causing the patient pain, or is limited in its ability to move.) Both groups will undergo ultrasound imaging of the shoulder.
