HMI104 represents your Foundation Principles and Application of Medical Imaging unit for Semester 2 of Year 1 of the H309 (Medical Imaging) course. This is a single unit of two credit points which explores foundational content in anatomy, physiology and pathology.

HMI104 firstly explores the fundamental embryological processes that occur from fertilisation to the fourth week of gestation, providing a foundation for the origin and organisation of various body tissues.

We further address the musculoskeletal system by investigating the anatomy of the shoulder girdle, hip and gluteal region and vertebral column aligned with PBL cases in HMI105. We will then explore the lower respiratory tract, chest wall and breast to conclude our regional anatomy for the semester.

Beyond the mid-semester break, there will be a three-week pathology intensive where we will explore the fundamentals of pathology and cell death, neoplasia, and inflammation. This provides a foundation to explore the scientific explanations underpinning common diseases that appear in medical imaging practice.
