This study explored the radiographic and anatomical differences in normal shoulders between men and women, as well as factors such as race, height, weight, and age. A total of 205 patients with documented normal anatomical radiographs comprised the study population. This study demonstrated precisely defined proximal humeral anatomical relationships and sizes using an advanced standardized imaging software program. With these data, orthopedic surgeons and implant designers can better understand the anatomy and glenohumeral relationships to re-create when performing total shoulder arthroplasty.
