MRI findings of possible Impingement syndrome

User Profile
Help! I do not understand what these terms are. I have had shoulder pain since sept 2016 and physical therapy has not helped. I cannot extend my right arm overhead without pain. I sleep, in pain. My MRI just came back but I cannot read it.

Can anyone help translate?
