A portfolio of evidence equivalent to 2,500 words.

Formative assessment will be achieved by feedback on discussion board contributions from the module team, indicating where good understanding has been achieved or where there is scope for further exploration and development.


The module syllabus will typically include:

  • cross-sectional anatomy of the human body
  • use of cross-sectional images to demonstrate relevant anatomical structures
  • use of hybrid images to illustrate common disease states
  • using knowledge to support practice, and improve service delivery
  • clinical decision-making and the role of hybrid imaging in this process.

Entry Requirements

You must have a radiography professional qualification or relevant clinical Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) experience.

You will not be able to access this module if you do not have a Mentor and/or Departmental support to complete the necessary appraisals, log-numbers and monthly reports. Please contact the module leader if you have any queries relating to this.


The 15 credit Anatomy and Pathology in Cross-Sectional Imaging module allows you to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the regional anatomy of the human body in health and disease.

On completion of this level 7 (Masters level) module, you will be able to:

  • demonstrate relevant understanding of anatomical spatial relationships
  • critically evaluate pathological changes to normal anatomy
  • critically discuss the application of anatomical and pathological knowledge to professional development and service improvement.

Learning and Teaching

Teaching and learning methods will include, but not be limited to, asynchronous delivery of lecture material through narrated presentations, notes and other guided reading, VLE discussion board fora with specific objectives, workplace tasks, and other study tasks deemed appropriate to the development of student knowledge. Formative feedback on allocated study tasks will be provided via discussion boards.

Cross-sectional anatomy will be learnt through narrated presentations; tasks that require active engagement, such as image labelling, drawing and answering questions; and image review on provided image series for each of the body areas.

You will also be encouraged to review images produced in their own clinical departments. Anatomy will also bedemonstrated through specific examples of disease that show anatomical structure and how it is changed in the presence of disease.

Scheduled learning includes vodcast presentations, discussion board entries, work based learning. Independent learning includes hours engaged with essential reading, assignment preparation and completion.

Study facilities

The College of Health, Science and Society has an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching and the facilities it provides.
