Single image slice may not capture 3-D muscle measurements in rotator cuff tears

Patients with rotator cuff tears experience fatty infiltration increased percentages of most likely caused primarily by muscle atrophy and a single image slice did not capture 3-D muscle measurements, according to recently published data.

Single-image assessments had no significant association with 3-D measurements of fatty infiltration for the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles. Researchers found significantly increased percentages of fatty infiltration for each rotator cuff muscle in patients with rotator cuff tears vs. matched controls.
