Since the new test has a very high sensitivity, that translates to that if the test is negative then there is a high likelihood that you can rule out RC tear. This means there should not be very many false negatives. There could be a lot of false positives however with a specificity of 25% or when the test is positive you can’t feel confident to rule in the dx. Hope this helps.
