Transaxial View of the Shoulder
- used to evaluate capsule of shoulder, & glenoid labrum, subscapularis & long head of the biceps, and the humeral head;
- glenoid labrum produces low signal intensity since it is made of fibrous tissue;
- Hill-Sachs lesion, seen as a notched defect of flattening of humeral head, proximal to the level of the coracoid process;
- more distally there is a normal flattening of posterolateral humeral head
