A Web-based Tutorial for Teaching the Schatzker Classification System for Tibial Plateau Fractures

Tibial plateau fractures represent a complex injury to the knee. At our institution, these fractures are classified by radiologists and orthopedic surgeons using the Schatzker classification system. This classification helps separate the fractures into groups with similar mechanisms and patterns which will have similar treatment options.  This tutorial allows dynamic scrolling through CT images and real-time manipulation of 3DVR CT images of tibial plateau fractures.
