- First semester 2017 (Day)
Students will learn the principles of human biology and genetics, and the chemical, cellular and tissue organization of the human body. In addition, they will develop an understanding of the gross anatomical structure of the appendicular skeleton together with their radiographic appearances.
Upon successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- Describe the life processes which distinguish living forms from non-living things and the structure and properties of molecules associated with the life processes;
- Define the structure and physiological processes of the typical human cell, the mechanisms which control growth and differentiation and cellular transport;
- List the structure and functional relationships of the four principal types of body tissues;
- Describe the bony and soft tissue elements and joints which comprise the pelvic girdle and lower limb, the associated process of ossification and their radiographic appearances;
- Name the bony and soft tissue elements and joints which comprise the shoulder girdle and upper limb, the associated process of ossification and their radiographic appearances;
- Recognise the relationship between the musculature and distribution of fat in the superficial tissues;
- Apply knowledge of the surface body contours to radiographic positioning for the upper and lower limbs;
- Recall anatomical position and regional names, anatomical directional terms, body sections planes and sections of the body.
