Forgot to mention abdomen CTs, of course. Just know the organs locations. Also, more importantly try to be able to identify the aorta, IVC, and portal vein. Kaplan notes contain good images on these.

Do remember that on CTs, right & left are reversed, so it's the left side of the patient that's on your right hand side, and vice versa.
