About Primal Pictures:

Primal Pictures was established in 1991 with the goal of creating the only complete and medically accurate 3D model of the human anatomy.
In July 2003 we completed this mission. Our 3D anatomy software is widely adopted in education and it is currently used for patient, practitioner and student education in over 20 countries.  In 2010 over half a million students will learn anatomy using Primal software.
