Medical animation

on .

With the widespread use of web and multimedia, animation is fast becoming an integral part of a medical artists skill base. Animations can be created in two-dimensions from existing artwork to create a more eye catching graphic, or to convey, for example, a surgical concept or mode of action more effectively than illustration alone. Alternatively, three-dimensional animation can be used to create engaging visual effects and to model objects that can be 'turned around' to show clearly complex anatomy or a medical product design feature. Animations may be produced for education, advertising, sales and marketing and output for web, CD-Rom or video.
