Abstract: Most of the papers in the literature are on rotator cuff lesions. This paper will deal with a somewhat forgotten part of the shoulder, the joint and the nontendinous structures around the joint. Since 1985, we have performed ultrasound examinations of the shoulder. We have collected many cases and some of them will be performed. The shoulder joint can be partly examined by ultrasound. We can get some information about joint effusions, humeral head cartilage, some part of the labrum, loose bodies, ganglions and fractures around the joint. The acromio-clavicular joint is also part of the examination, leading to diagnosis of sprains, osteoarthritis and dislocations. Non rotator cuff examination of the shoulder must be a routine part of the ultrasound examination of the shoulder. Copyright © 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
