Provides advanced knowledge to enable image evaluation of the head, neck and musculoskeletal system across multiple modalities with systematic, critical approach.
MEIM 403 teaches the link between imaging findings and the patient's underlying pathophysiology. A range of common pathologies on various modalities are considered with respect to imaging findings and their underlying pathological process.

- Learning Outcomes
- At completion students will be able to:
- Critically examine approaches for the selection of suitable imaging modalities as part of the patient's care pathway
- Demonstrate advanced understanding of anatomy for the selected anatomical systems and explain common pathologies and their risk factors and symptoms
- Evaluate the clinical course of a selected pathology and compared images from a choice of imaging modalities
- Illustrate an enhanced ability to analyse medical images logically, consider different diagnostic and management pathways with other clinicians, make informed decisions regarding patient care and personalised imaging
- Illustrate enhanced ability to communicate information, arguments and analyses effectively, orally and in writing, to a range of health care professionals
- Have a commitment to ongoing acquisition of new knowledge and new skills
- Display enhanced ability to apply specific skills in acquiring, organising, analysing, evaluating and presenting imaging and clinical information, in particular recognising increased prominence of digital-based activity
- Appreciate biculturalism within the framework of the Treaty of Waitangi; acquire knowledge and appreciation of multiculturalism and ability to apply such knowledge in a culturally appropriate manner
