This thesis examined the interaction between two factors i.e.
acromiohumeral distance (AHD), and supraspinatus tendon (Ss T) thickness, representing extrinsic and intrinsic factors respectively.When possible, use our Word template (for Research Articles), which will facilitate accurate preparation and processing.

Principles and Procedures for Evaluating the Toxicity of Household Substances (National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC, 1977).Chapter 2 of this thesis describes a series of methodological studies, examining reliability and validity of these measures.These studies demonstrated that ultrasound imaging can be used to undertake reliable and valid measures of AHD and reliable measures of Ss T thickness in both RC tendinopathy and painfree populations.As part of a study examining the validity of AHD measurement, a novel shoulder ultrasound phantom was developed which has potential to act as a training tool for shoulder ultrasound examinations and/or injections.The studies in Chapter 3 examined differences in AHD and Ss T thickness in a group of people with RC tendinopathy compared to painfree controls, both cross-sectionally and also in response to a bout of fatigue loading.
