Why use medical illustration?

Medical illustration and multimedia can help your company or practice communicate complex medical concepts. A medical illustrator can help you or your company:

  • Enhance your patient education and advertising materials or web site with accurate medical illustrations and animated graphics.
  • Communicate a concept that isn’t visible to the human eye.
  • Create editorial illustrations to explain a scientific concept.
  • Illustrate a product or instrument that’s still in prototype.

What is unique about medical illustration?

Medical illustrators need a strong scientific focus but also a keen imagination, because we’re often asked to illustrate what can’t be seen. For example, a surgical photograph may show the surgical field but not the subtle points that the surgeon wants to convey. A skilled medical illustrator can capture these nuances by using different angles, or by hiding or highlighting certain anatomy or instruments.
