The Human Body: Anatomy, Embryology and Imaging
Glenn C. Conroy, Ph.D.
M05 501B THE HUMAN BODY: ANATOMY, EMBRYOLOGY, AND IMAGING
: Glenn Conroy, Ph.D., 362-3397
The course is based largely on the dissection of the human body. Lectures on functional and topographic anatomy emphasize the principles of organization of the various systems of the body. Lectures on developmental anatomy stress organogenesis as an adjunct to understanding the normal and abnormal anatomy. An extensive museum of labeled dissected specimens is housed in the dissection room for ready reference by students who encounter abnormalities or variations in their dissections. Frequent use of CT, MRI, and X-ray images aid in the synthesis of knowledge gained through dissection. Small group discussions emphasize radiological anatomy and clinical correlations. This course is restricted to first-year medical students, but limited space is sometimes available for nonmedical students enrolled in the PhD program with instructor's permission.
