Sopwith Model III: Dislocation of strata Featured Print

Sopwith Model III: Dislocation of strata

This model represents the side of a valley of denudation, with undisturbed horizontal beds of sedimentary rock when fully assembled. The model can also be taken apart to reveal the pattern of outcrops that would occur when faults are present. Significantly it illustrates how a single seam of coal, when subject to erosion and faulting, could outcrop in several areas and appear as multiple beds of coal. Thomas Sopwith (1803 - 1879) was an eminent geologist and civil engineer who pioneered methods of representing geological features. This set of wooden models were designed to represent geological situations with faults, folds, inclines and strata that were particularly relevant to the mining industry

Dislocated knee of baby, X-ray Featured Print

Dislocated knee of baby, X-ray

Congenital knee dislocation. Coloured X-ray of the dislocated and twisted knee of a female baby. The lower leg bones have twisted 180 degrees to the femur (at top). The tibia (shin bone), the thicker lower leg bone, should be on the right of the fibula (thinner lower leg bone). The bones on either side of the knee joint should also line up. Dislocation can occur due to injury such as a hard knock or twisting movement, or may be a congenital (present from birth) abnormality such as here. It can cause considerable pain. Treatment is by manual manipulation to relocate the bones and they may have to be immobilised to set them in place. For images showing the manipulation of the leg bones to their correct position, see M330/1561 and M330/1562


Dislocated kneecap, X-ray Featured Print

Dislocated kneecap, X-ray

Dislocated kneecap. Coloured X-ray of a side-view of the leg of a patient with a dislocated kneecap (patella) and ruptured patella tendon. The kneecap (dark brown, right) has moved upwards in front of the thigh bone. Dislocation can occur due to a hard knock or twisting movement, often during sport, or an imbalance in the muscles at the front of the thigh (quadriceps). It causes considerable pain and an inability to straighten the leg. Treatment, after relocation, is with anti- inflammatory drugs and physiotherapy, severe cases may need surgery. The patellar tendon attaches the quadriceps to the shin bone. Rupture is caused by a trauma to the knee. Treatment is with surgery
