Abstract EN

The present study aimed to describe the normal cross sectional anatomy and magnetic resonance imaging of pastern and coffin joints in dromedary camel.

This study was conducted on twelve distal limbs (fore and hind) of fresh cadavers from three adult camels of both sexes.

The specimens appeared normal without orthopedic disorders.

Twelve distal limbs were scanned using a 1 Tesla MRI scanner and then injected with colored latex to be sectioned into sagittal, dorsal and transverse slices.

Cross anatomical sections were matched with their corresponding MR images for identification and evaluation of the clinically relevant anatomical structures that appeared with different signal intensities on MRI scans.

The present study showed that all major soft tissues in pastern and coffin joints of camel were clearly depicted on MR images, however, the palmar /plantar ligaments of pastern joint and ligaments of navicular cartilage could not be identified on MR images.

The annotated cross anatomical sections with the corresponding MR images could be used as a normal reference for interpretation of some clinical diseases in pastern and coffin joints of camel.
