: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of oblique coronal MR images, oblique axial images of neutral, internal rotation and external rotation positions in the diagnosis of SLAP II lesion. Materials and Methods : MR arthrography of the glenohumeral joint was evaluated retrospectively in 16 patients(16 shoulders) who underwent arthroscopic surgery(mean age; 38 years old, Male ; 13, Female ; 3). Oblique coronal fat-suppressed T1-weighted spin echo images were performed with each shoulder in the neutral position of the arm and oblique axial images were performed in neutral, internal and external rotations of the arm respectively. The preoperative findings of MR were classified as definite tear, possible tear and no tear. Arthroscopic findings were correlated with MR findings of several different position of the arm. Results : Arthroscopic surgery revealed 8 SLAP II lesion, 2 SLAP I lesion, and 6 normal superior labrum respectively. The accuracy of diagnosis in the 8 SLAP II lesion were high on oblique axial image in external rotation which were interpreted as 8 definite tear, to compare with oblique axial images in neutral position which were interpreted as 4 definite tear, 3 possible tear, 1 no tear. The 6 normal superior labrum lesion were interpreted as no tear in all three position. The 2 SLAP I lesion were interpreted as 1 definite tear, 1 no tear on oblique axial image in neutral position and 1 definite tear, 1 possible tear on oblique axial image in external rotation. Conclusion : This study showed that axial MR images in external rotation of the arm combined with oblique coronal images have proved to be effective to detect SLAP II lesion, and should be considered in imaging protocol for MR arthrography of the SLAP II lesion.
