Özet

Three- dimensional (3D) reconstruction obtained by using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) images have widely been used in anatomical studies. Thorax is one of the most important body cavities necessary for the protection of lungs and heart in mammals Two adult mongooses (1 male, 1 female) obtained from traffic accidents were used in this study. The images obtained from MDCT were stacked and 3D reconstruction of thorax was performed by overlaying images using a 3D modeling software (Mimics 13.1). Some measurements of thoracic cavity, lungs and sternum were taken from the reconstructive images of mongoose and indexes were calculated from these measurements. The morphometric parameters were recorded for both sexes. From the study, it could be concluded that the thoracic cavity, lungs and sternum imagings and findings revealed by 3D modeling techniques can be utilized for anatomical training of wild animals This study is expected to help in the diagnosis and treatment of thorax diseases in wild animals.
