Foundations of Clinical Appraisal of Images of the appendicular skeleton - 11th May

Aims of the course

The course will introduce the student to the terminology and key concepts used to describe the structure and function of the appendicular skeleton.  It will examine the microscopic and macroscopic anatomy, physiology and common trauma/pathologies associated with the musculoskeletal system.

 

Learning outcomes

On completion students  will be able to:

1.       Demonstrate the correct use of terminology related to anatomical positions, directional movement, regions and planes of the body.

2.       Describe the anatomy, physiology and pathology of specific areas of the appendicular skeleton (shoulder girdle, hand and wrist, forearm, foot, ankle, knee), naming and recognizing the significance of common pathology associated with each system.

3.    Describe the effects of radiation on the cell and the possible manifestations on the body as a whole.

4.    Safely request an X-ray examination of the appendicular skeleton with full consideration of radiation protection and IRMER

5.       Understand the radiographic projections required to image the hand and wrist, forearm, and foot, ankle, lower leg,

6.       Evaluate the technical quality of radiographic-images of the appendicular skeleton.
