The Human Brain · Atlas of the Human Brain · Brain in Stereotaxic Space Brain – The Atlas of the Human Brain in Stereotaxic Space A short introduction in to the Atlas of the Human Brain and the Brain used throughout for the research on this site. To take a more systematical approach to the use of the provided material both on the DVD from the "Atlas of the Human Brain" and the applications you can find on this website the following explanatory steps might help. Figure 1: The Brain used for research in the "Atlas of the Human Brain" and which are used for the main applications is from a 24-year-old male from the Vogt collection in Düsseldorf. Figure 2: After determining the surface of the brain the brain is cut in 5 blocks prior to the sectioning process according to the sterotaxic space. Figure 3: Following the delineation process based on analysis of the cyto- and myelostructure of each slice, there are several reconstructions in three dimensions.

Welcome to LearningRadiology Breath Sounds Lung sounds Breath Sounds Auscultation of lungs help determine the airway and alveolar integrity, ventilation and presence of abnormality. There are two normal breath sounds. Bronchial and vesicular . Breath sounds heard over the tracheobronchial tree are called bronchial breathing and breath sounds heard over the lung tissue are called vesicular breathing. The only place where tracheobronchial trees are close to chest wall without surrounding lung tissue are trachea, right sternoclavicular joints and posterior right interscapular space. Method of Exam Use the diaphragm of the stethoscope. Note the intensity of breath sounds, symmetry, length of inspiration and expiration. Normal The bronchial breath sounds over the trachea has a higher pitch, louder, inspiration and expiration are equal and there is a pause between inspiration and expiration. The vesicular breathing is heard over the thorax, lower pitched and softer than bronchial breathing. Caution:
