Radioanatomy (x-ray anatomy) is anatomy discipline which involves the study of anatomy through the use of radiographic films.[1] The x-ray film represents two-dimensional image of a three-dimensional object due to the summary projection of different anatomical structures onto a planar surface.

It requires certain skills for the correct interpretation of such images. Radiological anatomy is a necessary component of training for radiologists as well as medical students.
