The thoracic inlet is the junction between the neck and the chest. A number of neural structures traverse this region. A knowledge of the location of these various neural structures and their relationship to one another is important when interpreting cross-sectional images of this region. This article will review the normal anatomy of the major neural structures that are found in this region.
