Dislocated shoulder: Unusual for a dislocated shoulder to be diagnosed with mri. In young person is typically caused by a high impact accident. Requires anesthesia to reduce. Is orthopaedic emergency and must be reduced within hours or cartilage dies. Once a young person has a dislocation the cup is disrupted and almost always requires surgery by shoulder surgeon to keep it from reoccurring.
