"This is an interactive tutorial that serves as an introduction to normal x-rays and cross-sections of the thorax for preclinical students enrolled in medical and dental human structure. The courseware was digitized and converted into Adobe Flash to provide beginners with introductory imaging that is critical to the interpretation of standard X-rays and CT- and MRI-scans. Its objective is to stimulate active self-directed learning by integrating introductory radiographic anatomy and into a structured format that is readily accessible for local and distance learning. It provides opportunities for learner self-assessment through repetition and immediate feedback. Active learning was achieved by creating four radiology tutorial units that target content areas dealing with standard and cross-sectional radiographic anatomy. It complements didactic and practical (dissection) activities of beginner health care professionals enrolled in human structure."
When teaching cross-sectional anatomy I find the most difficult part is to get the student to understand the different planes and how they relate to eachother. This is a great tutorial that shows multiple planes of the thorax to help students correlate the different planes together so they can better understand the anatomy as a 3-dimensional object and not a flat 2-dimensional picture.
