Will someone help interpret these MRI findings?
So, I know I have a rotator cuff tear but am wondering how bad it is and if it is big enough to require surgery, etc. Can someone give me their opinion?
Here are the negative things:
High grade interstitial tear of the supraspinatus tendon, ending 1 cm before the tendon termination, (width of the signal 11 mm), supraspinatus tendinosis
Supraspinatus otherwise of moderate increased size and signal representing tendinosis
Mild AC hypertrophy, abutting supraspinatus in neutral position, small amount of fluid in subacromial/subdeltoid bursa
Any input or opinions is appreciated. I have had one steriod injection and am scheduled for another Jan 26. The ortho doc said if that didn't help pain, we would need to discuss surgery.
