Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography:
Graphic Anatomy

This is the first in a series of articles structured to provide anatomically accurate functional schematics of the motor and sensory innervation of the face, neck, and trunk. This article provides radiographically oriented cross sections through the neck to assist in identifying clinically significant structures on diagnostic images and for injection procedures. Future articles will present the same information for the face, chest, and abdominal regions, respectively.
