Arm. In order to improve the quality of severe pelvis fractures' diagnostics, detection of pelvic organs' lesion, preoperative examination and monitoring of treatment, we have made a retrospective analysis of radiological data of 70 patients (46 males, 24 females) aged between 24 and 54 years who were treated in emergency departments of hospital.

Results. The diagnostic efficiency of X-rays for injuries of the pelvis in case of lesions of the acetabulum is less than MDCT (specificity - 70.4%, accuracy - 61.3%, sensitivity - 56.3%). At the same time, traditional X-rays should only be used to diagnose fractures without displacement and for the control of metal after the surgery It is established that multidetector CT is the method of choice and the first stage in the diagnosis of associated injuries and hidden pelvic fractures, and has the best indicators of diagnostic value (specificity - 69% accuracy - 95% predictive of a positive result - 90%).

Conclusion. It was established that radiography is a method of screening and monitoring of treatment in patients with injuries of the pelvic ring and acetabulum, and in the first place during the provision of urgent specialist care. However, existing X-ray examination methods are not sufficiently informative, particularly in the diagnosis of posterior half-ring damage and hip; early and complete radiodiagnostics of pelvic and intrapelvic organs' injures is the leader in terms of examination of patients. A differentiated approach to the assessment of individual semiotic signs of pelvic fractures with MSCT improves informative value not only from the standpoint of initial diagnostics, but also helps to predict possible complications.
