Three-dimensional image guided radiotherapy requires familiarity with axial anatomy of human body to facilitate accurate contouring of target volume for radiotherapy treatment planning. In this session we will review the axial anatomy of male pelvis using images from the visible human project. There will be a review of the literature on how the contour guidelines were formulated and their clinical application on a CT image set.

Learning Objectives:
1. Know the common anatomical landmarks in pelvis used for contouring.
2. Know the contouring guidelines used in published contouring atlas.
3. Know how to use the contouring guidelines in the clinic.
