There's a tag link at the bottom of this thread (CT-Images) click on it and you'll find many useful links and advices from members who just like you have been facing difficulties with CT scans.

Another tag link is (Ecuador) you might find it useful to connect to other fellow Ecuadorian USMLE students.

I think the only way to get good at reading CTs is to do it lots of times. At my school, they offer optional radiology tutorials... but if you don't have that luxury, I'm sure you can find lots of CT samples in online anatomy course and/or anatomy textbooks.
