Abstract

Understanding complex acetabular fractures is difficult and may require three-dimensional reformatted computed tomographic (CT) images. This paper evaluates a technique, digital rotational imaging (DRI). that displays multiple oblique images of the pelvis and acetabulum. When viewed statically, DRI provides optimal iliac and obturator oblique projections, often differing in obliquity from the conventional 45-degree orthogonal views. Dynamic DRI viewing in rapid sequence provides a three-dimensional effect that improves perception of acetabular fracture relationships.
