Interactive imaging lets you compare scans with 3d, cross sectional images of the hip, knee and foot.

Primal Pictures has launched 3D Anatomy for MSK Ultrasound: Lower Limb. This online and DVD resource provides medical practitioners with images and content to aid in the interpretation of ultrasound imaging used to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions of the hip, knee and foot. It is also used as a learning tool for faculty and students in ultrasound and radiology technology programs. Developed to support the rapidly growing use of MSK ultrasound, it is the latest tool from the award-winning publishers of the most complete and medically accurate 3D model of human anatomy.

“More and more practitioners are using ultrasound imaging to help diagnose musculoskeletal problems, and told us they wanted a tool that offers them visual guidance, clinical support and patient education,” said Peter Allan, Managing Director of Primal Pictures. “Our interactive imaging lets users compare scans with 3D cross sectional anatomy images of the hip, knee and foot, and is supported by extensive clinical content on common conditions and treatment options.”

An interactive imaging section allows the user to compare the labeled cross sectional anatomy of the hip, knee and foot with comparable ultrasound scans based on transducer positions and with MRIs in axial, sagittal and coronal planes. Rotational tools allow the user to see the ultrasound image at the same orientation as the anatomy view, which aids in understanding the image.

3D Anatomy for MSK Ultrasound: Lower Limb features an interactive anatomy atlas with 3D models and views of the hip, knee, ankle, and foot, plus nerves of the lower extremity. Every visible structure is labeled and interactive functions allow the user to add or remove anatomy in layers to reveal deep and superficial structures. Each view can be fully rotated or tipped to view structures and understand their relationships more easily.

In addition to thousands of 3D views of the bones, muscles, nerves and vessels of the lower body, the DVD also includes clinical content covering more than 50 conditions such as bursitis, tendon tears and ruptures, muscle tears, fractures, cysts and many more commonly presenting conditions and injuries.

Primal Pictures’ range of 3D human anatomy titles are already used by more than 500,000 students and 70,000 educators at over 600 colleges and universities around the world. Its flagship product, Anatomy & Physiology Online, was recently named the best Digital and Online Resource in the British Medical Association’s Medical Book Awards.
