Medical illustrations for “standard surgeries”

Project description of medical graphics to explain and document current standard surgeries.

MedicalGraphics worked on a project to explain and document all current standard operating procedures. We created a series of illustrations explaining various steps of the operation.

The customer wanted the illustrations to be using the SVG format for reasons of resolution independence. Due to the variety of organic layers and structures and also the extent of the entire illustrations, the use of 3D objects for this project was not advisable. Instead, the Illustrations were created within a vector drawing program.

 Medical Graphics created these illustrations based on videos and in co-operation with the attending surgeon for the essential steps of the operation. The great difficulty was to fully understanding each surgical and the involved structures. For this purpose, a close collaboration with the surgeon was essential.
