Background: Of the wide spectrum of musculoskeletal disorders affecting the shoulder, subacromial impingement syndrome is considered to be quite common. The main objective of the present study is to evaluate the morphometry of acromion and to measure other parameters like acromiocoracoid distance (ACD) and acromioglenoid distance (AGD). Materials And Method: Study was conducted on 100 male and 100 female adult scapulae. Length and breadth of the acromion, ACD, and AGD were measured using vernier callipers. Measured parameters were tabulated and analysed for statistical significance. Results: Acromial length, acromial breadth, ACD and AGD varied significantly with sex. Positive correlation was observed between above parameters in male scapulae, whereas positive correlation was seen only between ACD & AGD among female scapulae. Conclusion: The studied parameters could be help during diagnoses and treatment of shoulder pathologies. They can also be used for forensic and anthropological purposes for determining gender, ethnicity.
