Description:

“The world’s most detailed 3D model of human anatomy online.” Primal Pictures features three-dimensional animations that illustrate function, biomechanics, and surgical procedures. Clinical videos and textual descriptions by leading specialists supplement the animations and models. Interactive learning modules covering basic human anatomy focus on one or more areas of the body, from a generalist’s or specialist’s perspective. Images are not mere drawings but are derived from real medical scan and dissection data interpreted by a team of staff anatomists, and constructed using advanced imaging by an in-house team of graphics specialists.

The 3D Real-Time Viewer includes detailed, clear and accurate 11 real-time models including Head, Spine, Shoulder, Hand, Thorax, Abdomen, Female Pelvis, Male Pelvis, Hip, Knee and Foot.
