Normal appearances.  Normal alignment of the ACJ.  No displaced fracture.  No rotator cuff calcification.

Shoulder radiographs can be performed to assess for fracture, and in cases of suspected glenohumeral joint dislocation, 2 views are required.  Rotator cuff calcification can be underestimated on radiographs and will depend on how mature the calcification is.
