medical illustration of The blood flow in a healthy aorta compared to the blood flow in an aortic dissection. In a dissection, a tear in the inner layer of the vessel causes blood to flow between the layers and form a false lumen. Depicted here is a type A aortic dissection - a dissection occurring in the ascending aorta.
medical illustration of Infographic depicting the four stages of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in individuals with a history of repetitive traumatic brain injury (TBI). Changes as the disease progresses includes a buildup of tau proteins, brain atrophy, cognitive impairment, and dementia. Also outlined are the prevention and return to play guidelines recommended for individuals that have experienced a traumatic brain injury.
medical illustration of Diagram showing the three component model of force transmission in muscles, including the parallel elastic component (PEC), series elastic component (SEC), and contractile component (CE). The contractile element is further made up of sarcomeres containing the microfilaments actin and myosin, while titin is an element of the series elastic component.
medical illustration of Diagram comparing the compression of the three component of force transmission in a biceps brachii muscle in long and short muscle length positions
medical illustration of 3D editorial illustration showing the various cell types in the retina of the human eye, including ganglion cells, bipolar cells, rods, cones, horizontal cells, and amacrine c
medical illustration of Illustration detailing the major regions of the brain, including the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, occipital lobe, and cerebellum.
medical illustration of Cross section of the heart with arrows showing the path that blood flows through the vena cava, right atrium, right ventricle, pulmonary artery, left atrium, left ventricle, and aorta.

medical animation of 3D and motion graphic animation outlining the definition and significant statistics surrounding mild traumatic brain injury and concussion. The animation further details the cellular changes that occur on a pathophysiological level to the brain during an mTBI, including changes to blood flow, damage to neuron cell membranes, microtubule damage, and neuron swelling.
medical illustration of Cross section anatomy of the eye, including the optic nerve, fovea, sclera, choroid, retina, lens, zonular fibers, pupil, cornea, pars plicata, and pars plana.
medical illustration of 3D illustration depicting bacterial conjugation in Escherichia coli (E. coli).
medical illustration of Anatomy of the blood supply to the stomach and duodenum, originating from the celiac trunk and abdominal aorta. Branches include the left gastric artery, esophageal branch, splenic artery, short gastric arteries, left gastro-omental artery, common hepatic artery, hepatic artery proper, right gastric artery, gastroduodenal artery, right gastro-omental artery, and the superior mesenteric artery.
