Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of lecture and teaching terminology methods on learning anatomy in radiology students.

Methods: Fifty freshmen were randomly divided into two groups: control and experimental. The control group was taught through traditional method and the experimental group via teaching anatomy concepts and terminologies. Students were evaluated through mid-term and final term examinations.

Results: Final term scores in the experimental group were significantly higher than those of control group.

Conclusion: This study indicated that teaching anatomy terminologies motivates students to study more and prevents them from memorizing the materials.
