Synopsis

The anatomical relationships of bones, organs, blood vessels, nerves and muscles. The unit will address in turn the general anatomy of the head and neck including the brain, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis, the vertebral column and spinal cord, the upper and lower extremities and their associated articulations. Each topic will include consideration of osseous, muscular and vascular components, nerves and viscera. The related sectional anatomy in transverse, sagittal and coronal planes will be address utilizing contemporary 3D medical imaging.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

  1. Describe the tissues and fascia, bone and cartilage, muscles and nerves that give structure to the human body;

  1. Communicate an understanding of bone growth and maturation of the bony skeleton;

  1. Describe the anatomical structure of the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis, the vertebral column and spinal cord, the upper and lower extremities, their associated articulations, tendons and ligaments and muscle groups;

  1. Explain the relationship between various anatomical structures found in the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis, the vertebral column and spinal cord, the upper and lower extremities and their associated articulations;

  1. Name and identify on a range of plain film and cross sectional CT images the osseous components of the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis, the vertebral column and spinal cord, the upper and lower extremities, and their associated articulations;

  1. Name and identify on cross sectional CT images important muscles of the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis, the vertebral column and spinal cord, the upper and lower extremities.

  1. Name and identify on cross sectional CT images blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels, and other soft tissue structures of the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis, the vertebral column and spinal cord, the upper and lower extremities;

  1. Apply an enhanced knowledge and understanding of human anatomy to the resolution of radiographic practice issues and challenges;

  1. Demonstrate written communication skills, information and technological literacy in relation to clinical and imaging anatomy and the capacity for critical thought and analysis.
