Dissection gives the student a three dimensional view of the structures of the human body. Knowledge acquired in the laboratory and in the study of cross-sectional anatomy provides the student with an understanding of the relationships between these structures. This understanding, in turn, allows the student to read radiological images, whether they be x-rays, CT scans or MRI's. Here you will have an opportunity to view images of actual human cross-sections and MRI's taken at approximately the same level of the human body. Labeled frontal sections are also shown here. You must be able to identify all the structures indicated in these images.
