HMI104 represents your Foundation Principles and Application of Medical Imaging unit for Semester 2 of Year 1 of the H309 (Medical Imaging) course and is a single unit worth two credit points. HMI104 presents an opportunity to explore the anatomical and physiological concepts that set the foundation for delivering safe, high-quality examinations in practice.

As a foundations subject, learning will be centered on the explanation of the structure and function of the human body, the use of discipline-specific nomenclature, exploring the scientific explanations underpinning disease and injury, and identification of essential anatomical structures, physiological processes, and pathologies on medical imaging.

• HMI104 Weeks 1-8 follow a regional approach to lower limb, upper limb, vertebral column, and bony thorax in alignment with PBL cases and unit content in HMI105. These weeks involve the development of 'normal axis' anatomy, pathologies impacting these regions, and the appearance of this on medical imaging.
• After the mid-semester break, we divide into two placement blocks, and these three weeks will be used to explore two fundamental topics of pathology: inflammation and neoplasia. This builds on your foundational knowledge of the cell and tissue level of anatomy from HMI102, and deviations from the 'normal axis' on medical imaging.
