of the study was to analyze the supraspinatus outlet image of sagittal MRI in rotator cuff disease. We analyzed the sagittal views of the shoulder MRI of 78 cases without cuff tear. The cases were divided into 51 cases of rotator cuff disease group and 27 cases of control group. Six parameters of acromial tilt, coracoacromial ligament angle, length and height of coracoacromial triangle, length of acromial side of the baseline and distance of intrusion of the humeral head were compared for each group. The distance of intrusion of the humeral head was the most significantly different one, 0.52cm for rotator cuff disease group and 0.15cm for control group. Intrusion of the humeral head to the supraspinatus outlet space from the bottom may be a contributing factor developing rotator cuff disease. The intrusion may precede to tearing of the rotator cuff.
