Summary of Content

This module will commence the underpinning of knowledge and understanding of anatomy and radiography specific normal anatomy.

Syllabus

In relation to the Skull, facial bones, mandible, shoulder girdle, upper limb, chest, Abdomen, pelvis, lower limb, and spine:- Skeletal and normal, planar radiographic anatomy Normal cross sectional anatomy relevant to each taught surface, macroscopic and microscopic anatomical region of the human body. Common normal radiographic appearances Medical and directional terminology to identify regions of the body, skeletal landmarks and anatomical systems. Common, normal radiographic appearances

Learning Outcomes

On the completion of this module the student should be able to:1. Describe skeletal and normal, planer radiographic anatomy.2. Identify normal cross sectional anatomy relevant to each taught surface, macroscopic and microscopic anatomical region of the human body.3. Identify common, normal radiographic appearances.4. Locate internal body structures with reference to surface markings.5. Explain and apply medical and directional terminology to identify regions of the body, skeletal landmarks and anatomical systems.

Teaching / Learning Strategy

The module will utilise a variety of teaching, learning and assessment strategies to promote an in-depth foundation knowledge and understanding of the principles of anatomy and radiography specific normal anatomy and appearances of the Skull, facial bones, mandible, shoulder girdle, upper limb, chest, Abdomen, pelvis, lower limb, and spine. Structured pre-reading tasks, keynote lectures (clicker technology deployment), utilisation of E-learning and a VLE, tutorials will provide a varied teaching and learning environment to support the students in becoming an autonomous learner.
