Monkey duodenam

Oddly, this post coincided with a topic on "Ask Mr. Histologyman":
Question:
One of my associates insists that duodenam is pronouned "duodenam" while I think it is actaully pronounced "duodenam." Which is correct?
Answer:
Both are incorrect. The actual pronunciation is "duodenam."

In the UK I guess we would usually pronounce it duo-deenum, though I have heard due-oddenum. Definitely no -am at the end.

Looks like the slide is mislabeled.
