Title: Divisions of Anatomy


1
Divisions of Anatomy
2
Anatomy
  • The study of ___________?
  • From the Greek anatome meaning to dissect
  • Structure dictates function!

3
Subdivisions of Anatomy
  • Because anatomy is such a broad science, it is
    more meaningful when specific aspects of the
    science are considered
  • Subdivisions we will discuss Surface, gross,
    systemic, regional, developmental, embryology,
    pathological, histology, cytology and radiographic

4
Surface Anatomy
  • Study of the form (morphology) and markings of
    the surface of the body

5
Gross Anatomy
  • AKA macroscopic anatomy
  • Study of structures that can be studies without
    the use of a microscope

6
Systemic Anatomy
  • AKA systematic anatomy
  • Study of specific systems of the body such as the
    nervous system or the respiratory system

7
Regional Anatomy
  • Study of a specific region such as the chest or
    head
  • Can include several different systems

8
Developmental Anatomy
  • Study of development from the fertilized egg to
    adult form

9
Embryology
  • Study of development from the fertilized egg
    through the 8th week in utero

10
Pathological Anatomy
  • Study of structural changes associated with
    disease

11
Histology
  • Microscopic study of the structure of tissues

12
Cytology
  • Microscopic study of the structure of cells

13
Radiographic Anatomy
  • Study of the structure of the body that includes
    the use of x-rays
