PA-C; White, Marie PA-CJournal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants: March 2014 - Volume 27 - Issue 3 - p 46–48 doi: 10.1097/01.JAA.0000443971.54105.18 Diagnostic Imaging Review Abstract Author Information ABSTRACT: Acetabular fractures are frequently missed on plain view radiographs of the hip and pelvis. A high degree of clinical suspicion for an acetabular fracture should be maintained in any patient with persistent traumatic hip, pelvic, or buttock pain, and inability to ambulate. In the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates' Department of Emergency Medicine in Washington, D.C., Alexander C. Lee is a clinical instructor of emergency medicine and Marie White is an assistant clinical professor. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
