The rotator cuff tendon (RCT) is the primary dynamic stabilizer of the glenohumeral joint. However magic angle effect decrease the sensitivity of MRI in assessment of RCT. The purpose of our study is to utilize the 3D ultrashort echo time Cones sequence with magnetization transfer preparation (UTE-Cones-MT) and two-pool quantitative MT modeling to assess the RCT.
