AAOS 2022 - Variation in Scapulohumeral Rhythm of Pathologic Shoulders

Using Dynamic Digital Radiography to Measure Variation in Scapulohumeral Rhythm of Pathologic Shoulders.

Patients with various shoulder pathologies suffer from a diminished range of motion and scapulohumeral rhythm (SHR), defined as the ratio of the respective contributions of glenohumeral and scapulothoracic motion to arm elevation. While previously challenging to measure SHR in a clinical setting, a novel technique known as Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) provides a safe and cost-effective method to evaluate aberrancies in motion directly. This study aimed to measure the SHR of pathologic shoulders using DDR.
