Radiology of Acetabular Fractures


- See: Radiology of the Pelvis

- Classification:
    - elemental frx patterns:
            - posterior wall
            - posterior column frx
            - transverse frx
            - anterior column frx
            - anterior wall frx
    - associated frx patterns:
            - T shaped frx
            - posterior wall + posterior column frx
            - transverse + posterior wall frx
            - anterior column or wall + posterior hemitransverse
            - posterior column + anterior column frx

- Radiographs:
    - specific views:
            - AP view
            - Judet View
    - landmarks:
            - roof arc measurements: determine need for surgery;
                    - these need to be taken w/ the patient out of traction;
            - tear drop
            - ilioischial line
            - iliopectineal line
            - posterior rim
            - anterior rim

Classification of common acetabular fractures: radiographic and CT appearances

MR imaging of acetabular fractures: value in detecting femoral head injury, intraarticular fragments, and sciatic nerve injury.

CT of acetabular fractures: postoperative appearances.

Routine pelvic radiography in severe blunt trauma: is it necessary?

Evaluation of the role of coronal and sagittal axial CT scan reconstructions for the imaging of acetabular fractures.
