medical illustration of Zika virus transmission from a female mosquito biting skin. The virus is spread by infected Aedes mosquitoes. The virus enters the bloodstream, leading to infection and symptoms such as fever, rash and joint pain. Pregnant women can spread the infection to their fetus, causing birth defects like microcephaly. No vaccine or medication is available yet.
medical illustration of Fractured wrist as a result of a fall off a skateboard. The radius bone has broken, but the ulna and carpals remain intact. Such orthopedic trauma will cause pain, swelling and bruising. An x-ray will assure the doctor of the diagnosis. Treatment involves immobilization with a cast. Sometimes surgery is needed.
medical illustration of Digestive system shown in a male figure. Organs include the esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, small intestine, and colon. The appendix is shown as well. This is a 3D grayscale image with a linear, woodcut look to the figure.
medical illustration of Stages of retrovirus replication. A retrovirus binds to a target or host cell and is internalized by fusion into the cytoplasm. DNA replication, transcription to RNA within the nucleus, and translation and protein synthesis are involved. A retroviral structure includes a membrane, viral enzymes, RNA with transgene, capsid, matrix, and envelope proteins.
medical illustration of Exocytosis in an animal cell. A vacoule fuses with the cell membrane, releasing it's molecular contents. The cell contains numerous organelles including the nucleus, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, centrioles, ribosomes, Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, and the cytoskeleton.
medical illustration of Portrait of a hound dog. Having a pet can help keep you healthy, both mentally and physically. Proper veterinary care along with a suitable diet and daily exercise is important for canine health.
medical illustration of Cancer treatment involving antibody-drug conjugate which binds to the tumor cell and enters via endocytosis. The cytotoxic medication is released, which causes apoptosis (cell death) of the tumor cell.
medical illustration of Still life of fruit, including strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries, all part of a healthy diet rich in vitamins and nutrients. Berries are also high in antioxidants, and some are considered a superfood.

medical illustration of Skeleton in bony environment showing osteoclasts (which absorb bone tissue) being attacked by zolendronic acid, a bisphosphonate intravenous drug used in the treatment of bone diseases like osteoporosis. Name brands of this drug include Reclast and Aclasta. White women are at higher risk of this disease, particularly after menopause due to decreased levels of estrogen.
medical illustration of Male figure including the liver, gallbladder, duodenum, and spleen, and highlighting the pancreas. The pancreas is sectioned to show the pancreatic ducts and vessels. A histological section is included to show the islets of Langerhans, the beta cells of which produce insulin, which is shown in molecular form. Insulin along with glucagon are hormones which regulate blood glucose levels. Insulin deficiency can result in diabetes. Hypoglycemia is an overproduction of insulin.
medical illustration of A proton pump inhibitor is a type of drug taken to treat or prevent various gastric conditions including heartburn, ulcers, and gastroesophageal disease (GERD). These drugs reduce the production of acid by binding to the gastric proton pumps within parietal cells, inhibiting their ability to secrete hydrochloric acid (HCl) into the stomach. Image shows a male figure with a pill in the stomach, and a zoom out of gastric tissue and a parietal cell.
medical illustration of Glass stomach showing excessive intake of pills, some of which may be prescription drugs and some which may be over the counter medications and vitamins. Drug interaction, overprescribing, and overdose are all major concerns.

medical illustration of A fetus with a heart monitor electrode attached to the scalp. The wire is inserted through the vagina, past the cervix and into the uterus. The heartbeat of the baby is heard on the monitor and is recorded on a printed chart. This is done to see if the stress of labor is affecting the baby's health and to check the uterine contractions.
medical illustration of Contact lens with saline solution splash forming droplets. Surrounded by a ribbon of blue fluid.
medical illustration of 3D model of lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, trachea, and larynx surrounded by smoke. Emphasizes the dangers of smoking to respiratory health.
medical illustration of Surgical procedure of the foot and ankle region showing the Achilles tendon being sutured to the calcaneus bone of the heel.
medical illustration of Deep vein thrombosis results when a blood clot forms while sitting for long periods. Risk increases when crossing legs. The clot (thrombus) of red blood cells causes leg pain and swelling. The clot could break loose and travel through the bloodstream and get lodged in the lungs, becoming a pulmonary embolism. Signs include dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath and other respiratory problems. Postphlebetic or postthrombotic syndrome can result from damage to the veins.
medical illustration of Surgical procedure showing aortic valve replacement using a Portico valve with a stent frame. Used in patients with aortic stenosis. A cross section of the heart is shown with a focus on the ascending aorta between the atria. A catheter is advanced into the left ventricle. The transcatheter heart valve is unsheathed and can be repositioned if necessary. This feature reduces the risk of embolization, coronary obstruction and atrioventricular block.
medical illustration of A brain sketch with an inflammed, blocked artery with plaque and a clot. A stroke occurs when an artery that supplies blood to the brain gets obstructed, depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. A blood test called PLAC predicts acute cardiovascular events by measuring the level of an enzyme in the bloodstream that contributes to inflammation of blood vessel walls.
medical illustration of The circulatory or cardiovascular system is composed of the heart, arteries, veins, arterioles, venules, and capillaries. Here it is shown inside a glass male figure standing in a neutral pose. Many branches of blood vessels are seen.
medical illustration of Bacterial biofilm showing cells adhering to each other on a surface. The microorganisms form a slimy substance that sticks to materials. Dental plaque is a biofilm that forms on teeth, and leads to cavities and gum disease.
medical illustration of Section of a leaf showing the guard cells, spongy parenchyma, palisade mesophyll, stoma, cuticle, air space, and vascular bundle. Liquid botanical treatment has been applied to the leaf surface, any arrows show it's flow to the inner leaf.
medical illustration of Leukocytes of the immune system, including a neutrophil, eosinophil, basophil, lymphocyte (B cell, T cell, and NK cell) and monocyte. Note the granulocytes and nuclei. The number of leukocytes in the blood is known as the WBC count.
medical illustration of Intraocular lens (IOLs) are implanted to treat cataracts or nearsightedness. In this case, a Phakic IOL with two haptics is placed behind the cornea over the iris for correcting myopia, so it's considered an alternative to LASIK or PRK eye surgery. This clear implantable lens corrects vision without replacing the eye's natural lens, as opposed to IOLs used to treat cataracts, where the IOL is implanted behind the iris after the natural cloudy lens is removed.
medical illustration of Elderly man with healthy food options including meat, cheese, snow peas, salmon, cereal, and milk. Vitamin supplements are an option, but nutrients are best received through a balanced diet with foods from all the food groups (dairy, fruits, vegetables, grains, and protein). A well balanced diet will keep organs such as the stomach (digestive system), kidneys (urinary system) and bones (skeletal system) healthy.
medical illustration of Hormonal contraception options include birth control pills (oral contraceptives, also known as
medical illustration of Close up view of cloth showing patterned texture to emphasize it's absorption properties. Liquid is being splashed onto the roll of cloth.
medical illustration of 3D model of a face with glasses created out of a paper material, hinting at a papier mache look. The man in the portrait is author Jonathan Franzen, and some of his writing appears on the torn paper pieces.
medical illustration of Depending on the severity, nasal obstruction in neonates and infants can lead to respiratory distress, feeding difficulties, obstructive apnea, and/or sleep interference. This sagittal section of a baby's head highlights nasal anatomy including the turbinates, alar rim, nasal valve, pyriform aperature, choana.
medical illustration of Diagram showing the synapse between two neurons (or nerve cells) during excitotoxicity. Excessive amounts of glutamate, a neurotransmitter, is being released from the axon terminal of the presynaptic neuron into the synaptic cleft. The receptors become overactivated, allowing high levels of calcium to enter the neuron, which activates enzymes to damage cell structures like the calcium pump. Excitotoxicity may be involved in CNS injuries and neurological diseases.
medical illustration of Balloon dilation and drainage of frontal sinus using XprESS device. The instrument is advanced through the nasal passages. This surgical procedure is performed on patients with sinusitis.
medical illustration of Cover of Ophthalmology Management showing laser cataract surgery of the eye. The femtosecond laser shines through the cornea and pupil to hit the cloudy lens. It then uses the near-infrared light to fragment the cataract into tiny pieces, which are then removed. An intraocular lens (IOL) replaces the natural lens to restore vision.
medical illustration of 3D model of custom dental trays, which are used for teeth whitening treatments.
medical illustration of Skin cross section showing the stages of wound healing. A moist bandage is placed over a scrape. A blood clot and inflammation is seen. New tissue forms at the edges, and eventually the wound heals. This technique of keeping the injury covered and moist is believed to lessen the chance of scarring.
medical illustration of Pregnant patient with heart and lungs in hospital bed suffering from cardiac and respiratory issues. An EKG graph wraps around the woman. Electrocardiograms are safe tests during pregnancy, and detect arrhythmias and irregular heartbeats. Tocolytic medications are used to suppress pre-term labor and inhibit uterine contractions.
medical illustration of In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedure involving retrieving an egg from the woman's ovary and allowing sperm to fertilize it in a lab setting. When male infertility is an issue, intracytoplasmic sperm injection is used to ensure fertilization. The mature oocyte is held by a pipette and the sperm is injected directly into it. The fertilized egg (zygote) divides to become a morula, then a blastocyst, and finally an embryo.
medical illustration of Contact lenses, solution, and eye drops sitting in a puddle of liquid. Dry eye is an eye condition commonly found in contact lens wearers.
medical illustration of Female silhouette highlighting the respiratory system anatomy, which includes the lungs, bronchi, trachea, larynx, pharynx, oral and nasal cavities.
medical illustration of Graphic representation showing levels of certain transmembrane glycoproteins, indicated by molecules inside glass arrows. CD4 is found on T helper cells, essential parts of the immune system. CD25 is found on T cells and B cells. CD8 is found on cytotoxic (killer) T cells.
medical illustration of Sciatica is pain in the buttocks and leg, which sometimes radiates to the toes. This condition occurs when the origin of the sciatic nerve is compressed or irritated. In this case, a bulging intervertebral disc in the lumbar region is pressing on the nerve roots, and causing radiating pain down the leg.
medical illustration of The metacarpophalangeal joints (MCP) of these hands are red and inflammed due to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This autoimmune disease attacks the synovial joints, tendons and bursae, and causes cartilage and bone destruction. RA is a systemic disease which may involve other organs too.
medical illustration of Hand putting out a cigarette in an ashtray. In the smoke are various smoking cessation methods (or nicotine replacement therapies) including nicotine gum, patches, inhalers, sprays and pills.
