Study Summary

This trial will compare image quality of two MRI techniques to detect shoulder labral/cartilage pathology.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for English-speaking adults aged 18-65 who likely need labral surgery or have chronic shoulder issues. It's not for those with recent trauma or who can't complete both types of MRI scans.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares two MRI techniques: a standard MR arthrogram using a 1.5 Tesla magnet and a newer non-contrast method with a stronger, 3 Tesla magnet, to see which better detects shoulder damage.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
There are generally no side effects associated with undergoing MRI scans. However, some individuals may experience discomfort from lying still during the procedure or anxiety in the confined space of the MRI machine.

Trial Design

1Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Group I: TreatmentExperimental Treatment2 Interventions
Patients will be imaged with standard of care MRI shoulder arthrogram on a 1.5 T magnet and additionally with non-contrast MRI of the shoulder on a 3 T magnet. All patients will be dually imaged. Initial imaging will utilize the standard of care, and, subsequently, patients will be brought back within 2 weeks, for non-contrast MRI as part of the study protocol
