The paper presents the case of a young snowboarder injured after falling down on a hill slope. Pelvis and spine computed tomography with 3D reconstruction visualised fractures not visible on standard radiographs. Not all injuries to the pelvis can be seen on a-p radiographs. It is due to its complex spatial anatomy and the presence of gas-filled tissue overlying the bony shadows. Fracture detection may be a diagnostic problem in elderly osteoporotic patients and in young patients with multiple injuries. We believe that computed tomography with 3D reconstruction should be performed when there is a strong suspicion of fracture in spite of a negative standard radiological examination.
