Course Dates

Course Information : Distance Learning there are no contact days at UWE. Online Induction Days (not mandatory but advised) where the module will be discussed: 6th October 2020 and 7th October 2020. Module commencement: January 2021. Submission date: 27th April 2021.






Component A:
A portfolio of evidence equivalent to 2500 words.

The portfolio of evidence is deemed an appropriate method of assessment in its ability to assess all module learning outcomes. The inclusion of extracts from discussion board contributions ensures your engagement with the module content but also with peers for shared learning and debate.

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.




Syllabus will 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.

Course Director

Rob Stewart


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 the course 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.
