Although AP and Judet views, which show the major radiographic landmarks of each acetabular column, generally diagnose and classify AF [1], CT is superior in revealing exact fracture pathologic configuration, impacted or incarcerated fragments, hip joint residual congruence, or associated lesions [11, 12]; 3D reconstructions of CT data are a more valuable visual tool for defining AF, especially complex displaced fractures for which mental reconstruction of the axial sections into a 3D configuration is a time-consuming effort [11, 13, 14].


In conclusion, it is the responsibility of the radiologist to determine accurately and precisely the extent and types of fractures using the Judet-Letournel classification which is the most widely used and reported system for AF evaluation.
