Sample text

Chapter 1: Anatomy and Physiology: The Big Picture The organs that “belong” to one system can have functions integral to another system. In fact, most organs contribute to more than one system. The blood vessels are an excellent example: They serve as a transportation network, delivering nutrients produced by the digestive system to the skeletal muscles to provide energy for locomotion and to the uterus to support the developing fetus. They remove the byproducts of the energy consumed in locomotion and by the fetus in development and carry them to the organs of the urinary system for excretion.

CT technology is still an active area of development. Major technology manufacturers maintain robust product lines of CT instruments and accoutrements for use in clinics and clinical research. Another class of imaging technologies uses radiation from within the body to create the images that show bodily processes — physiology as well as anatomy. A substance called a radiopharmaceutical, which combines a radioactive isotope and a drug, is administered to the patient. It travels to and concentrates in the anatomical structure of interest, and the drug is metabolized there.

The concentration of glucose in the blood must be high enough to ensure that the cells have enough fuel. However, extra glucose beyond the immediate needs of the cells can harm many important organs and tissues, especially where the vessels are tiny, as in the retina of the eye, the extremities (hands and, especially, feet), and the kidneys. Diabetes is a disease in which there is a chronic overconcentration of glucose in the blood. The amount of glucose in the blood is controlled mainly by the intestines (refer to Chapter 11) and by the hormone insulin.
