Anatomic and Computed Tomographic Atlas of the Head of the Newborn Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops Truncatus)

Fernando Liste, Jorge Palacio, Vicente Ribes, et al.

Veterinary Radiology & Ultrasound, 2006. 47(5): p.453-460.

The head of a newborn dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), that died shortly after birth was imaged using computed tomography (CT). Gross cross-sectional slices of the head were compared with the CT images to identify normal structures of the cranium, brain, and respiratory and digestive pathways. Labelled transverse CT images of the dolphin head are presented sequentially as a reference for normal anatomy.
