Medical Illustrations

August 17, 2012 § 1 Comment

The last year I’ve ventured into the domain of medical illustration. I’ve used Adobe Illustrator for different purposes for many years, but when I was asked to illustrate a case report on the repair of a chronic posterior sternoclavicular dislocation, I jumped on the opportunity to get to know the tools better.

I am a trained photographer, and by no means an accomplished medical illustrator, but I’ve been able to expand upon the client’s ideas and provide them with functional schematic illustrations. In pre-digital times our department had several illustrators on the staff, but that was over fifteen years ago. I’m glad we can provide some level of service in this field again. There’s certainly no less demand for it.

  • Your medical illustrations are certainly better than my clinical photography would be. Did you exhibit at the IMI conference last year as there were some fantastic photographs there?
