Medical Illustrators are often given the creative freedom to turn scientific data into a dynamic visual concept that can be entirely realistic or didactic. The image above accompanies the journal article "Emerging development in the use of bioactive gl...
Who is a medical illustrator?A medical illustrator is a highly skilled professional artist with the ability to visually communicate and problem solve. Most medical illustrators have acquired a master’s degree from an accredited graduate program. The experiences gained during the duration of the program contribute to the capacity to find new ways to effectively communicate with a variety of people. Medical illustrators will attend lectures that involve working along side medical students. The course load includes human anatomy, clinical studies and cadaveric dissections that strengthen their knowledge of the human body. Histology and pathology are studied to gain a better understanding of the cellular processes and medical anomalies within the body’s systems.
With this education and understanding, a medical illustrator possesses the skills to problem solve and communicate at a healthcare professional level. Medical illustrators work with surgeons to illustrate a specific surgical procedure, collaborate with medical legal firms to create illustrations for surgical malpractice trials and they can produce effective visuals for pharmaceutical companies.
Flexibility and VersatilityA medical illustrator’s creative versatility and flexibility help them overcome obstacles. Illustrators can capture a mood, atmosphere or emotion that appeals to a specific audience. This can improve the effectiveness of communications that lack and are limited by text and words. They can illustrate new devices or procedures that are only conceptual and can focus on a certain feature that otherwise would be overlooked. Medical illustrators explore new, innovative ways to create compelling images that fuel a technology driven society. They generate 2D, 3D and interactive visuals that cater to a technology driven society.
InnovativeAs a professional, the value of a medical illustrator is endless. Medical illustrations provide more than a photograph or simple text. As a medical illustrator the abilities to problem solve, be versatile and thrive on new ideas and innovations, makes us indispensable.

Developments in TechnologyResearchers are exploring a long list of ways that nanotechnology could make your visit to the dentist more comfortable, and make the result more effective and attractive.
- Delivering therapeutic drugs with nanoparticles or nanorobots that go straight to the source, enabling smaller doses and reducing side effects.
- Taking high quality images of your mouth with lower levels of radiation.
- Creating dental implants that mimic the nanoscale features of natural bone and interact better with connecting bone and tissue.
- Strengthening and whitening teeth by inserting nanomaterials with these properties into the outer layers of enamel.
- Sending a particular molecule to the site of a dental implant, bone surgery, or tooth decay that tells the cell to initiate repair.
Dentistry has come a long way from beeswax fillings, with many exciting advances on the horizon. Scientists with backgrounds in nanoscience, chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine are working together, forming companies and research collaborations that aim to turn these possibilities into dentist office realities—realities that will hopefully make your life a little more comfortable, your smile a little brighter, and your teeth healthier and more durable.
Our ReactionAt Core BioVisuals each biomedical illustration serves as a vehicle for knowledge visualization, communicating and transferring a message between the reader and the author. We took on this publication. Advances in technology have increased our ability to manipulate the world around us on an ever-decreasing scale. Nanotechnologies are rapidly emerging within the realm of medicine, and this subfield has been termed nanomedicine. Use of nanoparticle technology has become familiar and increasingly commonplace, especially with pharmaceutical technology. An exciting and promising area of nanotechnological development is the building of nanorobots, which are devices with components manufactured on the nanoscale. With these interesting advances in technology, the interest of the public is always at there. This informational pieces, shows the build/imaginative design of nanobots in the body environment to open up the world of curiosity and excitement about the ongoing projects, as well as inform the general public about the continuous advancements in medicine.
