The liver is one of the most confusing organs to get to grips with, and one that medical students know very little about prior to startinf medical school. This document aims to explain everything a first year medical student needs to know about the liver in a clear and concise manner, with the aid of bulletpoints and diagrams.
This poster shows one of a series of drawings which were created using Adobe Illustrator CS4 and Adobe Photoshop CS4. A series of Coronal and Axial CT sections from a 27 year old male, who consented to their use for education (including specific consent for the purposes of this competition), was used as a template for the drawings which are then displayed alongside the original grey-scale image.
The aim of the drawings is to help with interpretation of CT imaging by placing them alongside a coloured illustration of the original. Sectional images are a very valuable tool for learning the 3D relationships of anatomy.
