Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate and apply an understanding the normal adult and paediatric anatomical structures as visualised in planar radiography, CT and MRI images;
2. Identify, locate and apply anatomical surface landmarks as they relate to the anatomical relationships of each region;
3. Articulate the anatomical relationships of the major structures, including skeletal, organ, muscle and vascular structures, of each region with respect to planar radiography, CT and MRI; and
4. Recognise and articulate anatomical variants on co-registered physiological images of SPECT and PET.
Graduate attributes1. UC graduates are professional - communicate effectively
1. UC graduates are professional - employ up-to-date and relevant knowledge and skills
2. UC graduates are global citizens - make creative use of technology in their learning and professional lives
Students are required to have a thorough understanding of equivelant units Introduction for Regional Anatomy and Physiology & Systemic Anatomy and Physiology. The knowledge of the correct terminiology in diagostic medical imaging, basic physical principles relating to the to various imaging modalities and the application of the imaging modalities to different patient presentations, is an advantage.
Depending on the situation with Covid, if necessary the lectures will be pre recorded and posted on the Cavas subject site. Similar for the tutorials, these will be conducted online. A link will be provided if this is required.
This unit contributes toward the folowing Medical Radiation Board of Australia Professional capabilities for medical radiation practice and National Board approved medical radiation practice accrediation standards

The students will participate in various learning activities such as lectures, tutorials and self-directed learning. The lectures and tutorials are blended involving a mixture of face to face and Canvas virtual room at the scheduled teaching times. The teaching schedule is available on Canvas site and allocated teaching rooms available via UC timetable/Allocate+. Apart from the lectures and tutorials, students are required to engage in at least 4 hours of independent, self-directed learning per week.
It is recommended students attend lectures and tutorials (material given in lectures and tutorials is examinable).
Attending tutorials during assessment week is compulsory. Failure to attend results in zer(0) grade.
