Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scan are essential in the practice of pelvic-floor and colorectal surgery. This chapter discusses the conceptual anatomic constructs essential for understanding pelviperineal anatomy. Selected CT scan and MRI of normal anatomy are presented, highlighting the important osseous and myofascial landmarks.
