Module summary

This module builds on the information the student gained from level 1 in ARCS 1028 Musculoskeletal anatomy and radiographic pattern recognition. The module covers the normal anatomy, physiology and pathology of the systems of the body. The incorporation of the anatomy and physiology with the sectional imaging is intended to reinforce the clinical applications for greater relevance for the students. This will enable the students to develop their image interpretation skills in more complex areas of imaging.

Objectives

The aim of this module is to build on the information gained from level 1. It will focus on normal anatomy, physiology and radiographic pattern recognition of the body systems. The incorporation of the anatomy and physiology with the sectional imaging is intended to reinforce the clinical applications for greater relevance for the students. The content will be delivered in a regional / systems approach as appropriate to be reflective of anatomical demonstration in radiographic imaging.

Learning outcomes
On successful completion of this module you will be able to:

1. Describe the normal anatomy and physiology of the body systems and relate these to their location on the surface of individuals in professional practice
2. Describe the normal anatomy and physiology of relevant systems in relation to body regions:
a. Head (including skull) and neck, thorax and upper limbs
b. Abdominal and pelvic cavities and lower limbs
3. Identify anatomical features as presented on diagnostic images in relation to body regions:
a. Head (including skull) and neck, thorax and upper limbs
b. Abdominal and pelvic cavities and lower limbs
4. Relate structural specialisation to function in the systems
5. Understand the biological perspectives of health and disease
6. Relate common anatomical image appearance of the regions of the body to image production by the various imaging modalities
7. Describe how common pathological manifestations are represented on diagnostic images
8. Demonstrate a systematic approach to image evaluation resulting in the production of a preliminary evaluation on normal/abnormal cases for radiographic images
9. Describe resultant diagnostic image changes due to pathology.

Skills outcomes
The student undertaking this module, on satisfactory completion will be able to: describe normal anatomy of the systems and regions covered; understand the basics of how pathology manifests itself with reference to the topics covered; demonstrate the ability to recognise anatomical features on medical images; demonstrate a systematic approach to evaluating images of the chest and abdomen.

Private study

The 225 hours of private study that have been allocated to you for this module are to enable you to prepare and supplement your notes for this module, as well as complete the workbooks associated with this module. They will also allow you to prepare for and undertake formative and summative assessments. The breakdown of activities are identified as follows:
100 hours reading/writing up notes
25 hours work book completion
25 hours tutorial preparation
75 hours assessment preparation

Opportunities for Formative Feedback

During the module you will be required to undertake course work. This will help develop your learning and prepare you for the summative assessment. This will take the form of:

Completion of workbooks:
use the labels provided to identify structures on the line drawings. Be able to relate these labels and line drawing appearances to the radiographic appearance found on the powerpoint presentation on the VLE. Keeping up to date with the lectures will greatly aid you with this activity.

Film viewing and commenting:
this aspect is to introduce and begin to develop you ability to comment on radiographs of the regional anatomy

Tutorials:
these are designed to help you with identifying problem areas and providing you with a structured approach to aid your understanding of the topics covered. For these sessions to be of use it is important that you take an active part in identifying areas of difficulty a couple of weeks prior to the scheduled tutorial.

Formative assessment:
the intention of the formative assessment is to provide you with experience of the format of the summative assessment, in order for you to fully prepare.

Feedback on the formative assessment:
this will give you an indication of the amount of work you have done or need to do and areas to concentrate on improving for your summative assessment.

There will be an unseen examination and an OSE at the end of each semester which will assess the content delivered in the respective semesters. The unseen examination will allow the assessment of the breath and depth of knowledge with regards to the anatomy of the body systems. The OSE allows the assessment of the principles of medical image interpretation, which includes recognition of anatomical features on the radiographic image and sectional images, demonstration of a systematic approach to image interpretation and articulating a preliminary image evaluation. There is full compensation between the two components with an overall mark of 40 requiring to be achieved for the two. The format of this assessment is subject to change due to restrictions imposed by Covid-19; the assessment will continue to meet the learning outcomes and the PSRB requirements
