In selecting patients for appropriate treatment, the detection of an acromial spur is helpful. Of the available techniques for imaging this spur, the 30° caudally angled anteroposterior radiograph of the shoulder in the erect position is the simplest, cheapest, and most reproducible method. In a busy clinical practice, it offers a distinct advantage over other methods.
