HMI204 represents your Foundation Principles and Application of Medical Imaging unit for Semester 2 of Year 2 of the H309 (Medical Imaging) course. This is a single unit of two credit points. HMI204 provides an opportunity to investigate the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system to provide a scientific basis for understanding common nervous system pathologies.

HMI204 begins with an introduction to the microscopic anatomy as well as the structural and functional organisation of the nervous system. We then use this foundation to explore specialised regions of the nervous system and their functions. Throughout these content weeks we will begin to appreciate how this anatomy appears on appropriate Medical Imaging modalities.

At the end of the block, we apply this understanding to investigate common pathologies of the nervous system and introduce the common findings of these pathologies on appropriate Medical Imaging modalities, setting the foundation for further studies in advanced modalities in Year 3 and 4 of H309.
