|Acetabular fractures: radiographic and CT characteristics|

To provide value-added service, the radiologist must interpret and describe AF using high-quality radiographs and CT scans, reviewed together. The Judet-Letournel classification system is the most widely used and reported system for acetabular fractures (AF) evaluation [1, 2].
Judet and Letournel divided AF in two groups, elementary (posterior wall, posterior column, anterior wall, anterior column, transverse) and complex (T shaped, posterior column and wall, transverse and posterior, anterior and posterior hemitransverse, both columns); each has its subgroups and between the different groups exist the transitional forms which are those presenting the typical lesion of a group, but having incomplete features of another neighboring group [1-4].
