Using a fourth-generation CT scanner, 2-mm contiguous transverse images were acquired from two neonatal 5-days-old Quarter horse foals. After the study the animals were euthanised for reasons unrelated to head pathology. To assist in the accurate identification of brain and associated structures, transverse CT images were obtained and compared with the corresponding frozen cross-sections of the head. CT images matched well with their corresponding transverse gross sections and provided good differentiation between the bones and the soft tissues of the head. These CT images are intended to be a useful initial anatomic reference in the interpretation for clinical CT imaging studies of the brain and associated structures in live neonatal foals.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/45857||ISSN:||0301-732X||DOI:||10.4067/S0301-732X2015000200012||Source:||Archivos de Medicina Veterinaria[ISSN 0301-732X],v. 47, p. 209-214|
