ANT 670 - Anatomical Techniques: Pathology for Anatomists
Credit Hours: 3
A clinical pathology overview course for professional anatomists which, when coupled with histology will afford the teaching anatomist with the knowledge and insight to identify and explain the gross pathologies most likely to be observed in cadavers as experienced in the dissection laboratory. Additionally, the general appearance of gross pathologies and the logic of their contrast in the imaging modalities studies in the radiology course, will be covered. This course is not intended to give teaching anatomists the capability to perform clinical diagnosis.
Upon completing the course, the candidate will be able to
- Describe the common mechanisms of disease in general pathology.
- Explain how disease changes the structure and function of normal tissues.
- Recognize typical gross presentations of all the common diseases.
- Understand how disease produces abnormalities on imaging. Correlate this with the knowledge based on the medical imaging course (classic radiographs, CT scans, nuclear medicine).
- Given any finding for which a definitive diagnosis is desired, prepare the tissue for processing and final diagnosis by a licensed pathologist
- Have a general understanding of disease to serve as a community leader in questions of public health
