This unit introduces the study of essential pathogenic processes and how these influence the structure and function of human body systems in health and disease. It then introduces the anatomical arrangement, spatial and topographic features and physiological significance of the cardio pulmonary, respiratory, renal, haematopoietic, gastrointestinal and reproductive systems.

The unit adopts a PBL approach with associated mini-cases in consideration of common conditions and pathologic processes encountered in the organ systems specified in the unit

The unit develops an in depth understanding of the normal structural and functional relationships of the components of the axial skeleton, vertebral column and bony thorax. The ‘Normal-Abnormal’ axis of clinical and radio logically significant appearances are also systematically analysed related to case based materials in the context of the contribution of skeletal-muscular imaging to case management.
