    Introduction: Dislocation of shoulder joint is the most common joint dislocation in the body.This dislocation is the most common one in the 2 period of life. In men between 20-30 years of age due to trauma and sports activities and in women between 60-80 years, usually due to increases in fall. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of abnormal radiography in the reduction of anterior shoulder dislocation. Materials and Methods: In a one-year cross sectional study, 236 patients with uncomplicated anterior shoulder dislocation who referred to Imam Reza hospital (Mashhad, Iran) were studied. The following data were obtained and recorded: the age and gender of patients, mechanism of injury, radiographs before replacing it up and the interpretation of results, the result of reduction and shoulders immediately following graph reduction, the result of the interpretation of radiographs after reduction, the dislocation and reduction. Results: The mean age of patients was 31.81 ± 13.22. 174 patients (89%) were male and 26 (11%) were female. Anterior dislocation in 116 patients (49.2%) were right shoulder and in 120 patients (50.8%) were left shoulder. Spontaneous dislocation (61.9%) was the most dislocation mechanism and the external ortation (46.4%) was the most reduction method. Physcial examination before and afer reduction, and the interpretation of radiographs after reduction indicated the correction of anterior shoulder dislocation in all pateints. Conclusion: This study demonstrated that radiography after anterior shoulder dislocation reduction is not necessary. Keywords: Shoulder Dislocation, Radiography
