Module 3 focuses on rotator cuff pathologies, beginning with the clinical manifestation, causes, and sonographic appearance of subacromial impingement, followed by discussion of os acromiale and tendinosis. Rotator cuff tears are covered in detail, beginning with a review of terminology and cuff tear types, followed by the ultrasound diagnosis of cuff tears, important measurements, and the progression of tears. Sonographic images and MRI correlation demonstrate full and partial-thickness tears, differential retraction, bursal herniation, and the cartilage interface sign and articular surface and interstitial tears. The module concludes with a review of the sonographic appearance post-surgical and arthroscopic intervention.
