VET30440 Abdomen & Pelvis- Topographical Anatomy
Academic Year 2021/2022
This module covers the basic anatomy of the structures and contents of the abdominal and pelvic cavities of the domestic veterinary species; including the key structures of the gastrointestinal and urogenital system. This includes their basic function, topographical relationships, attachments, blood supply, innervation and lymphatic drainage. Key principals are emphasised through reference to (a) the developmental progression involved in organogenesis of the structures comprising relevant body systems and (b) practical examples from surgery, pathology and clinical practice with the aid of X-ray plates and USG (ultrasonography).
On completion of this module students should be able to: (a) review the overall topographical, comparative and functional anatomy of the abdominal and pelvic cavities iof domestic veterinary species; (b) apply an understanding of the development of these regions to imply general patterns of blood supply, innervation, lymphatic drainage, peritoneal attachment and organ morphology; (c) display an appreciation of the 3D positions and relationships of all relevant organs and structures comprising these regions of the body; (d) relate the above to the basic radiographic anatomy & histology of these regions through an ability to accurately describe and identify all relevant organs and structures; (e) integrate the contents of this module with pre- and co-requisite modules.
