The subacromial space in normal shoulder radiographs

Petersson, Claes J and Redlund-Johnell, Inga LU (1984) In Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica 55(1). p.57-58
Abstract
The subacromial space in standard anteroposterior radiographs of 175 normal shoulders was between 9 and 10 mm. The space was significantly greater in men, with a slight reduction with age. In middle age, a subacromial space less than 6 mm is pathological, possibly indicating supraspinatus tendon rupture.
