Segmental bronchi of the right lower lobe (mnemonic)
The anatomy of the segmental bronchi of the right lower lobe can be remembered by using one of several mnemonics. The segments are as follows:
- superior (B6)
- medial basal (B7)
- anterior basal (B8)
- lateral basal (B9)
- posterior basal (B10)
Just remove the second "L" and the space after, and you have the first letter of each segment, in order. Feel free to make the "P" into its own word, if dirty tricks like that help you.
