Abstract: The objective of this study is to provide an Overview of the normal cross-sectional anatomy of the camel thorax using computed tomography (CT) images in 2 cadaver newborn dromedary camels. The camels were supported in sternal recumbency and CT scan was performed from the brachiocephalic trunk to the heart apex, with 3 mm slice thickness. A soft-tissue and lung windows settings were used. At the end of the CT study, cross-sections of the camel thorax were obtained as anatomical reference. Clinically relevant anatomical structures were identified and labelled in the CT images and cross-sections. Gross anatomical images provided an excellent anatomical details to characterise the CT anatomy of the camel thorax. The information presented in this study should serve as an initial reference to evaluate CT images of the camel thorax and assist in the interpretation of lesions in this region.
