3D Head & Neck Anatomy With Special Senses and Basic Neuroanatomy features unmatched animations of muscular movement in the head and neck. This inventive software features computer graphic models of anatomy derived from MRI scan data that can be rotated and allows layers of anatomy to be visually removed—from cranial nerves to the lymphatic system.
Winner of two Freddie awards in 2008, 3D Head & Neck Anatomy With Special Senses and Basic Neuroanatomy is a resource that presents stunning 3D computer graphic modeling of the head and neck. Like other Primal Pictures software, the interactive models may be rotated a full 360 degrees, and users can peel back layer after layer of anatomy to get an in-depth view of the various structures. Each structure can be labeled and is accompanied by explanatory anatomy text and links to all related content within the software, including dissections, clinical slides, X-rays of pathologies, diagrams, illustrations, video clips, and animations of functional anatomy.
3D Head & Neck Anatomy With Special Senses and Basic Neuroanatomy focuses on all the structures in the head and neck: face; larynx and pharynx; external, middle, and inner ear; orbit and eyes; oral and nasal cavities; teeth; tongue; sinuses; cervical plexus; brachial plexus; and an interactive laryngoscopic view down the trachea. It also features 10 detailed views of the brain and 13 views of cranial nerves.
Cross sections of the 3D models in up to 20 different slices are aligned with real MRI scans across three planes (axial, sagittal, and coronal) so that users can compare the models to real images. With painstaking attention to detail and dynamic imagery, this fully interactive software DVD also allows you to do these things:
Transform your presentations and lectures with the detailed 3D anatomical models.
Simply export or print any image or animation for use in presentations, patient education, or student handouts.
More easily explain conditions, treatment, and procedures with efficiency using 3D images and slides during consultations.
Make the overall teaching and learning experience more enjoyable.
This software took first place in the Health Education category at the 34th International Health & Medical Education Media Awards (also known as the Freddies), and was then also awarded the Michael E. DeBakey, MD award for Outstanding Educational Entry. The impeccable images and animations—and ease with which they can be exported for presentations—make this software an essential resource for anyone requiring a solid understanding of the anatomy of the head and neck.

Primal Pictureswas 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.
