Acromial spurs refer to bony spurs involving the acromion process (usually means a spur at the lateral end). If it extends inferior, it is then termed a subacromial spur. In that situation they can reduce the acromiohumeral interval and predispose to subacromial impingement. They are probably best evaluated on plain radiography in the sagittal oblique plane 1.
