The GSUS grading of shoulder bursitis was subjectively determined (0 = absent, 1 = mild, 2 = moderate, and 3 = severe), whereas the PD signal of bursitis was subjectively graded on a semiquantitative scale (0 = absent or minimal flow, 1 = mild or single-vessel signal, 2 = moderate or confluent vessels, and 3 = severe or vessel signals in >50% of the synovium area).
