    Hi I'm having a brain fart.

    I know you have to flip the image in your head when looking at a traditional x-ray.

    Do you do the same for CTs and MRIs?

    Yes. Axial images are taken as if you the viewer are looking from the feet of the patient at the patient lying on the bed. So your right is the patients left. Coronal images (like a chest film) are also taken as if looking at the patients. Basically, just imagine looking at the patient.
