Ovid Partners with Primal Pictures

May 12, 2006

Ovid Technologies, a Wolters Kluwer business and provider in electronic medical, scientific, and academic information research solutions, has announced a new partnership with Primal Pictures, creator of a 3D model of human anatomy, to provide access to three-dimensional interactive human anatomy animation, including video, through its Ovid Web Gateway search and discovery platform. Available now on Ovid, the product also includes a study guide and sample test questions for students. Primal Pictures on Ovid includes 21 interactive learning modules that focus on the anatomical, surgical, sports medicine, and other aspects of one or more areas of the human body--including the head and neck, spine, hip, pelvis, hand, knee, and shoulder.

Each module consists of three-dimensional computer models and animations that show structural relationships, functions, and biomechanics. German- and French-language modules are also available. Assessment and treatment videos, MRI images, pathology slides, and textual descriptions by specialists in their fields supplement the animations and models. More modules will be added to Ovid Web Gateway later this year. In addition, users will be able to search all Primal Pictures content across all modules on Ovid simultaneously.
