Pelvic injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after trauma. Accurate and timely diagnosis is essential to the orthopaedic surgeon in choosing the proper management course. Traditional radiography is an important initial mode of evaluation. Computed tomography (CT) using multiplanar and three-dimensional reconstruction is a valuable complementary modality. This article reviews the role of multiplanar and three-dimensional CT imaging in the assessment of pelvic injury.
