Evaluation of three-dimensional acromiohumeral distance in the standing position and comparison with its conventional measuring methods

Abstract Background Narrowing of the acromiohumeral distance (AHD) implies a rotator cuff tear. However, conventional AHD measurements using two-dimensional (2D) imaging or with the patient in the supine position might differ from that while standing during daily activity. This study aimed to evalua...
