Shoulder tendon injury. Labelled artworks and corresponding magnetic resonance (MRI) scan of anterior (frontal) views of an injury to a shoulder tendon forming part of the rotator cuff. The normal shoulder is shown at upper left. At right, the main artwork shows a partial-thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon at its footplate (where it attaches to the head of the humerus, the upper arm bone). Also shown here is a grade I acromioclavicular sprain (red, labelled).
