• Animated Atlas of Osteoarthritis

The Animated Atlas of Osteoarthritis is a comprehensive collection of 56 animated videos and around 100 images pertaining to the anatomy of joints, cartilage composition and function, types of osteoarthritis, its pathophysiology, biological causes and risk factors, diagnosis and treatment using medications and/or surgical methods. The Animated Atlas is an excellent reference and an invaluable resource for effective presentations and lectures.
