Head CT > Anatomy > Anatomy


Cranial cross-sectional anatomy is very important to know prior to analyzing a head CT. Once the normal structures are identified, abnormalities can be detected and a diagnosis may be possible. Symmetry is an important concept in anatomy and is almost always present in a normal head CT unless the patient is incorrectly positioned with the head cocked at an angle. We will present several representative CT sections with a corresponding sagittal MRI showing the level of the CTsection for you to examine. This will be followed by a quiz section which will allow you to practice identifying structures on a head CT. Make sure that you can identify each structure.
