The purpose of this study was to evaluate the suitability of various techniques for imaging acetabular fractures and to analyze our own material from the period 1988-2000. early and late outcomes were evaluated in 42 patients treated for acetabular fractures, of whom 24 were treated surgically. Standard X-rays and special projections of the pelvis were compared to CT scans performed once just after the trauma, and again an average of 5 years after trauma. Particular attention was given to how the diagnosis of these kinds is both accelerated and broadened by CT examination, and to the role computerized tomography plays in planning the type of treatment, the surgical approach to be used, and prognosis for late outcomes in acetabular fractures.
