Subacromial impingement syndrome produced by mechanical impingement of the supraspinatus tendon by a prominent antero-lateral contour of the acromion. Acroial shape, siope and osteophytes considered among the most common potential causes of shoulder impingement. The provided MRI ability to evaluate the most possible predisposing anatomic factors for producing subacromial impingement syndrome is the mainstay of this study. In 55 patients, the clinical picture, plain x-ray films and MRI examination are evaluated of those 40 patients were diagnosed as subacromial impingement syndrome were within the average age of 38.32+15.23, the remaining 15 patients (age average was 42.26+12.98) had controlled followed up by MRI. In whole studied shoulders the degree of subacromial impingement were compared with acromial shape, slope, and the acromioclavicular joints hypertrophy. The study concluded that acromial shape, and the degree of angulation or slope in anteroposterior plane have good relation with MRI findings in subacromial impingement syndrome (p<0.05). In the controlled group of patient done by MRI. It was noticed that hookshaped acromion and positive anterior sloping represent a higher incidence (p<0.05).
