The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic performance of three Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (3T MRI) compared to magnetic resonance arthrogram (MR arthrogram) in diagnosing superior labrum anterior posterior (SLAP) lesions. We hypothesize that 3T MRI will have non-inferior sensitivity compared to MR arthrogram in diagnosing SLAP lesions utilizing arthroscopy as our gold standard test. To evaluate our hypothesis, the investigators will ... Read More
