The role of thermography in the diagnosis of soft tissue lesions of the shoulder was evaluated by screening 28 patients with unilateral frozen shoulder and 86 patients with unilateral rotator cuff lesions. Index shoulders were then compared with the normal side. Differences in skin temperature distribution were found in 82% of subjects with frozen shoulder, nearly three-quarters of whom had reduced skin temperature. There was no consistent pattern of shoulder skin temperature found in rotator cuff tendinitis patients (49% normal, 28% reduced, 23% increased). Thermography can be helpful in the diagnosis of frozen shoulder but further studies are required to determine whether it is useful in other soft tissue shoulder lesions.
