• The distal supraspinatus tendon as well as the tendon of long head of biceps within the rotator interval appear thickened with increased signal an all sequences. No definite interruption of their fibers.
• Subchondral degenerative fatty signal is noted at the greater tubercle of humerus, related to supraspinatus tendon insertion.
