AbstractIntroduction to structure and function of the human body. The lectures will be based on current clinical practices in Radiology, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine.
ObjectivePhysiological and anatomical knowledge of the human body to ensure the correct understanding of basic concepts and to facilitate the collaboration of medical physicists and other health professionals.
Content'Anatomy and physiology for medical physicists I & II' provides insights into structure and function of the human body. The content is presented in an accessible manner targeted to physicist working in a medical environment. The lectures will be based on current clinical practices in Radiology, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine. After an introduction to cells and tissues the following systems will be addressed: 1) Support & Movement (musculoskeletal system, biomechanics); 2) Neuroscience (central and peripheral nervous system); 3) Auto-regulation (endocrine system) & Internal Transport (blood & cardiovascular system); 4) Environmental Exchange (respiratory, urinary, digestive & reproductive system).
