3-dimensional computerized imaging is a relatively new radiologic modality. The transformation of bi-plane CT images into 3-dimensions, enables the physician to rotate the desired region to any viewing angle. In complex anatomic regions such as the pelvis, it offers better visualization of lesions, avoids having to rotate the patient, and reduces the need for X-rays and exposure to radiation. Our preliminary results with this modality in 3 cases of complex fractures of the pelvis are presented.
