Abstract

Background: Snapping scapula syndrome, also known as scapulothoracic crepitus or bursitis, is a manifestation of a mechanical abnormality of the scapulothoracic joint. In addition to characteristic findings on physical examination, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exquisitely reveals soft tissue changes such as muscle edema and scapulothoracic bursitis.
