Pelvic obliquity is referred to as one of three parameters contributing to the pelvic orientation and defines the rotation of the pelvis within the coronal plane. It is a potential source of measurement errors on cross-sectional imaging, especially for measurements conducted on axial images if not considered and appropriately corrected 1.
On CT or MRI 3D images it can be easily corrected by reformatting true axial planes.
