This program is designed for teaching clinically relevant CT anatomy of the entire body. This is not a comprehensive guide for learning CT anatomy. The focus of this program is on specific structures which are readily seen on CT images but often are not well described in CT atlases. It is specifically oriented to structures that have clinical relevance. There are three sections to this program. The first section is in a quiz format where structures are shown in the brain, head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis, and the upper and lower extremities. The second section is a series of tutorials that describe how to identify structures in regions with complex anatomy or structures that have special characteristics that can be used to identify other structures. The third section consists of a glossary of anatomic terms with links to structures identified in the first two sections.
Images in this program are primarily 2.5 to 3 mm axial sections of normal CT scans with relevant sagittal and coronal reconstructions.
