Comparison of diagnostic accuracy of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Multidetector Computed Tomography in the detection of pelvic fractures
European Journal of Radiology, 08/20/2012
Henes FO et al. – MRI reaches a significantly higher sensitivity than CT in the detection of acute pelvic fractures, particularly of the sacrum. Especially in elderly patients with suspicion of a sacral fracture and negative results at Multidetector Computed Tomography, MRI may be considered as the next step in diagnostic workup.
