Perfusion parameters of DCE-MRI and muscle performance in rotator cuff muscles were evaluated in the 20 young badminton athletes. Perfusion parameters of MRI in the rotator cuff muscles may correlate with muscle strength and significant difference was observed in perfusion parameters between the anterior and the posterior bellies of supraspinatus muscle.
