The purpose of this article is to describe the complex anatomy of the pelvic ligaments. It uses schematics to display 10 color-coded ligaments in relation to the bony architecture. This atlas and the accompanying summary of the classification of pelvic ligamentous injuries is designed to encourage the use of magnetic resonance imaging in cases of pelvic ring trauma.
