Coordination of the Sub-Regions of the Supraspinatus and Deltoid Muscles During Shoulder Scaption: a Shear Wave Elastography Study

SUMMARY Background. Understanding the functional role of the supraspinatus (SSP) and deltoid muscles during shoulder motion is a basis for understanding rotator cuff pathology and for the development of appropriate rehabilitation protocols. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the coordination, focusing on activation timing, of the sub-reĀ­gions of the SSP muscle and of … Continued

A diagnostic Approach to Deltoid Muscle Masses

SUMMARY Introduction. Referred pain along the deltoid muscle is a common presentation of patients with shoulder pathology. Intramuscular lesions involving the deltoid muscle are often identified on routine ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging of the shoulder. The aim of this retrospective study is to review deltoid lesions identified at our institution and to provide a … Continued
