Do magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography provide equivalent measures of rotator cuff muscle size in glenohumeral osteoarthritis?
Rotator cuff muscle volume is associated with outcomes after cuff repair and total shoulder arthroplasty. Muscle area on select magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) slices has been shown to be a surrogate for muscle volume. The purpose of this study was to determine whether computed tomography (CT) provides an equivalent measurement of cuff muscle area to a previously validated MRI measurement.
