P. projection of the glenohumeral joint as well as Y-view or transaxillary views are taken. To evaluate the acromioclavicular joint directly, the Zanca view should be used by tilting the center-beam 30–45° caudocranial, aiming on the acromioclavicular joint (Zanca 1971). The Alexander view (Y-view with maximum arm adduction) helps to verify subluxation in acromioclavicular joints (Alexander 1954). p. projections comparing both sides should be taken, using 5–10 kg weights. Transaxillary views are highly recommended to diagnose a horizontal instability.

CT scan and scintigraphy (arthritis) can be performed but are of lesser importance than an MRI. Early osteolysis (repetitive trauma) or rheumatoid arthritis can be diagnosed through MRI. In acute acromioclavicular dislocations, a huge number of missed injuries (15 % SLAP lesion, 5 % fractures, 4 % rotator cuff tears) were found [12]. Acromioclavicular separations are classified by Tossy (1963) and Rockwood (1984). Kraus et al. published a new measurement tool for instability of the acromioclavicular joint, the acromioclavicular joint instability score (ACJI), in 2010.

The acromioclavicular joint is a diarthrodial joint, built by the acromion on its lateral aspect and the lateral clavicle on its medial margin. A fibrocartilaginous intraarticular disc is located between the osseous segments. K.
