    5. Identify and describe two tools of measurement in functional anatomy. Two commonly used tools to obtain anthropometric measures are x-ray and goniometers. X-rays and other radiological techniques aid in showing bones structure and mass in vivo. This is possible due to x-rays passing unobstructed through low density tissues and being obstructed by high density tissues. Goniometers are a tool used to measure the range of motion of a joint. This helps identify the plane of movement through…

    aligns all the Hydrogen protons in the body into one direction or plane i.e. to polarise the spin into one direction since all the atoms precess about their own axis. Once all the Hydrogen atoms are aligned along the same axis the Varying Coils labelled X, Y and Magnetic Z Coils in Figure 2 apply a second magnetic field of similar magnitude to the uniform field at a specific target location that is being investigated. The purpose of this is that it will flip the spins of a specific number of…
