In brief: Yes, along with exam
Mri is an excellent imaging choice to further define shoulder problems.
Usually, MRI is most valuable after a medical consultation and physical examination by a shoulder specialist. That physician can then best correlate MRI findings with clinical findings and determine the best course of action.

In brief: Yes
Mri is an excellent exam to evaluate the rotator cuff.
In addition, other structures including the labrum, tendons, muscles, bones, and soft tissues are well seen.
