Primal 3D series: Sports Injuries Knee, 2nd Edition
An essential reference for anyone involved in the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries, Sports Injuries: The Knee, Second Edition, provides a complete and accurate anatomical reference in stunning 3-D and a comprehensive guide to acute and chronic overuse injuries of the knee.
The anatomy section includes a high-resolution three-dimensional computer graphic model of the complete anatomy of the knee. You can choose from a variety of views of the model, rotate at any point, and peel away layers of anatomy from skin to bone. Clicking on any features or structures within the model brings up extensive anatomy, clinical, and pathology text supported by hundreds of color diagrams, videos, and slides.
The second edition features
-better 3D graphics with new 3D views that include bursae, fascia, lymph system, and synovial membranes;
-larger rendered images so the images can be viewed in a larger format when running the software;
-new 3D animations including skeleton with muscles running, throwing, and kicking a ball;
-animations of overuse injuries; and
-new 3D illustrations of injuries to accompany clinical text.
The injuries section has relevant pathology, ligament tests, surgical treatment, conservative management, and rehabilitation of many common and less common injuries of the knee. More than 180 physiotherapy and biomechanics slides and videos in this section provide unprecedented coverage of knee injuries. The acute injuries section covers meniscal tears, articular cartilage injury, fractures around the knee, patella tendon rupture, bursitis, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy (postinjury). The overuse injuries section has information on anterior knee pain (e.g., patellofemoral joint syndrome), lateral knee pain (e.g., iliotibial band friction syndrome), medial knee pain (e.g., synovial plica), and posterior knee pain (e.g., knee joint effusion). All of these examples have related slides and video clips.
Sports Injuries: The Knee, Second Edition, also includes a quiz and test facility, the ability to import any image into your own private educational presentations, royalty free, and will work on both Windows and Macintosh.

About the Author
Primal Pictures was established in 1991 with the goal of creating the only complete and medically accurate three-dimensional model of the human anatomy. They derive their computer graphic models from MRI scan data that have been interpreted by a team of Primal anatomists and then translated into 3-D images by an expert team of graphics specialists. The anatomy visuals are accompanied by 3-D animations that demonstrate function, biomechanics, and surgical procedures.
Attention to detail, accuracy, and clarity are at the cornerstone of Primal Pictures’ amazing products. These dynamic resources provide vivid images of specific areas of the body and are ideal for use by instructors, students, and professionals in the fields of athletic training, sports medicine, physical therapy, massage therapy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, fitness, strength and conditioning, and physical activity.
