medical illustration of Image of the synaptic cleft between two neurons. The presynaptic ending of the axon is shown containing neurotransmitters and mitochondria. Also shown is the diffusion of neurotransmitter molecules across the synapse to receptor sites on the postsynaptic dendrite. medical animation of Animation showing the synaptic cleft between two neurons. The presynaptic ending of the axon is shown containing neurotransmitters and mitochondria. Also shown is the diffusion of neurotransmitter molecules across the synapse to receptor sites on the postsynaptic dendrite. medical illustration of This image depicts the areas of the human brain associated with the five senses: touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell. medical illustration of Human nervous system, labelled to show the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), as well as the peripheral nervous system. medical illustration of This illustration was created to accompany a journal article by Cheng-Han Chen, M.D., UCLA Dept. of Cardiology. The article discusses a combined approach for amelioration of injury and rejuvenation of cardiac tissue.

medical animation of Animation shows the interior view of a beating heart, along with an animated illustration of an EKG. medical illustration of Anterior view of complete human skeleton. medical illustration of Anterior view of selected muscles of the human body. This labelled image shows the major abdominal, neck, arm, and leg muscles. medical illustration of Posterior view of selected muscles of the human body. This labelled image shows the major back, arm, and leg muscles. medical illustration of An anatomical view of the human figure, including the muscular and skeletal systems, as well as the brain.

medical illustration of Lateral view of selected muscles of the head, neck, and face. medical illustration of This image shows the effect of aging on the loss of muscle mass, using upper arm and shoulder muscles as the example. medical illustration of This illustration was prepared to accompany a medical journal article by Alex Milin, M.D., UCLA Dept. of Cardiology. It shows the process of advancing Aortic Valve Stenosis (AVS) and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) at a molecular level. The stages of disease, from early to late, are shown through microscopic images of affected tissues, as well as by a detailed graphic representation of the various cells and chemicals involved. medical animation of Animation compares correct posture with poor posture, which, if ignored, can lead to Anterior Shoulder Syndrome. The proper alignment of anatomical landmarks is shown first. The animation then highlights the problem areas that can result from poor posture, including a forward head, dowager hump, and rounded shoulders, along with neck and back pain. This animation was adapted from an educational brochure prepared for a chiropractor to use with her patients.
medical illustration of This image of the human eye shows how light rays reflect off an object, enter the eye through the cornea and then the pupil, and then through the lens, to be focused on the retina at the back of the eye. Here, at the fovea, the image of the object is inverted, but the brain interprets the position correctly.

medical animation of This animation is part of a longer video sequence being used in an online educational tutorial by the client, Rosetta Stone.  Animation shows the inhalation of virus particles through the nasal cavity and trachea and into the lungs. Within the lungs, the virus particles burst and infect the individual’s upper respiratory tract. The animation goes on to show an inflamed nasal cavity and the body’s production of mucus to fight the infection in the nose and throat. medical animation of This animation is part of a longer video sequence being used in an online educational tutorial by the client, Rosetta Stone. Animation shows the process of respiration. Details shown include the process of gas exchange through the capillaries in the alveoli. Oxygenated blood passes through the pulmonary veins to the heart, and then out to the body. Deoxygenated blood is carried by the pulmonary arteries from the heart to the lungs, where exhalation removes the carbon dioxide. medical animation of This brief animation shows the proper use of an asthma inhaler with a separate spacer. With proper positioning, the spacer holds the medication after it’s released from the canister, enabling the patient to inhale the full dose with greater ease. medical illustration of This illustration shows the stages of pregnancy during the second and third trimesters. The growth of the baby from the 4th to the 9th month is shown, as well as examples of the shifts in the baby’s position in the uterus during this process of development. medical animation of Animation is a portion of a longer sequence showing new cosmetic surgical techniques for breast reconstruction following breast cancer surgery. Details are shown for one possible tumor location, including the pre-operative marking of the patient, the removal of the tumor, the excision of breast tissue and fat, and the preservation and relocation of the nipple and areola to achieve the desired result. The client was a plastic surgeon who specializes in oncoplastic breast reconstruction.
