      Is this not a labrum tear?

      The two slides around this image had no line, but just this one.

      This was not on the report.

        I going to say yes, that is not a tear. I have nothing to support this other than I do not see any high signal intensity extending through or into the line and it just does not look like one to me. If this was my case, I would call the radiologist and have it reviewed. If it ends up being a tear that’s a great catch. If it’s not, hopefully, the radiologist will review with you what it is and why it’s not a tear (ie. normal variant, artifact, etc).

          That is super interesting. How does it look on the other weighted images (T1 vs T2 vs PD etc.)? If we are lucky the 90 degree plane might help too.
