Summary

Following the incidental discovery of a bilateral coracoclavicular joint, the authors undertook a radiologic study including helical CT scan and MRI. The 3D SDD images obtained are to the best of the knowledge of the authors, the first 3D radiographic representation of these joints. The supposed embryology and distribution of these joints are also discussed.
