OBJECTIVE. This study was designed to test our hypothesis that football players with shoulder pain, shoulder instability, or both requiring MR arthrography for evaluation are at an increased likelihood relative to non-football players for having a tear of the posterior glenoid labrum. CONCLUSION. We conclude that posterior glenoid labrum tears are more prevalent in football players than in non-football players.
