The article presents information on the technical aspects of performing magnetic resonance imaging of the shoulder joint. The magnetic resonance imaging allows high resolution imaging of all anatomic structures, including the glenoid, the articular cartilage, the acromion, the biceps tendon, and the glenohumeral ligaments, in multiple orthogonal planes. The resonance imaging often shows the associated pathological findings, including joint effusion.
