In medicine, bursitis is "inflammation of a bursa, occasionally accompanied by a calcific deposit in the underlying ... tendon. The most common site is the subdeltoid bursa. (Dorland, 27th ed)."[1]

Treatment

The use of fluoroscopy in guiding injection of trochanteric bursitis does not improve outcomes.[2]
