AbstractShoulder disorders are the most common complaint in general population and have an unfavorable outcome in many patients. Shoulder pain is the third most common cause of musculoskeletal consultation in primary care. Degenerative rotator cuff tear is the characteristic cause of shoulder pain and most often involves the supraspinatus tendon (SSP tendon). These tears can cause the significant impact on patient’s life, marking the functional impairment of shoulder joints. Plain radiography, ultrasonography, MRI, are the imaging modalities used for the assessment of rotator cuff-related pathologies. Ultrasonography of shoulder is accepted as the investigation of choice for rotator cuff abnormality mainly because it is non-invasive, cost effective, time consuming and well tolerated imaging modality that uses high frequency transducers to diagnose rotator cuff tears.This research deals with the study of prevalence of asymptomatic rotator cuff tears and their correlation with respect to age, sex, hand dominance and diabetes mellitus.
