Judet Views of the Pelvis

- See:
     - AP view
     - Radiology of the Pelvis:

- Internal (Obturator) Oblique View:
    - shows iliopectineal line anterior column of pelvis & posterior wall;
    - pt is supine w/ involved side of pelvis rotated anteriorly 45 deg & beam directed vertically toward affected hip;


- External (Iliac) Oblique View:
    - shows ilioischial line (posterior) column & anterior wall;
    - pt is supine w/ uninvolved side of pelvis rotated ant. 45 degrees;
    - central beam directed vertically toward the affected hip
    - intra-operative flourscopy: it may be difficult to achieve optimal flouroscopy views if the C-arm is placed on the same side as the fracture;
          - rotating the injured side to a lower position may improve the view;
