Synopsis: 
With the combined use of anatomical and imaging methods, the subtle anatomy of the atlanto-axial joint and related structures as well as their relations can be clearly and directly observed.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the anatomy and medical imaging characteristics in a study observing the atlanto-axial joint (AAJ) and related structures.

Methods: Eight cadaveric specimens of the AAJ segment were studied with both anatomical and imaging methods. The vertebral arteries of the AAJ segment (VA-A), the first and second cervical nerves (CN1, CN2) and synovial fold (SF) of the AAJ were observed and measured.
