A staff of talented artists, illustrators, photographers and programmers support the Foundation’s medical education and research efforts through the production of original illustrations, photographs and animations. Using a wide array of media and software, the department illustrates figures for journals and textbooks, prepares PowerPoint presentations, and develops animations for a variety of applications.
The department consists of three main sections:
Photography. The department provides digital photography in a variety of settings. For example, photography is used during surgery to document procedures and techniques, and images are later used in journals and textbooks to aid education and research.
Illustration. The department produces anatomically accurate original images and figures for manuscripts, digital presentations, on-going digital image archives, medical-legal defense exhibits, and even for advertisements for Hughston Clinic. The department is also responsible for creating artwork and layout for the Hughston Health Alert newsletter.
Animation. Animations are used by the doctors to supplement their lectures and presentations. Patient-education animations are also presented on flat-screen panels in the clinic waiting rooms and in professionally-produced DVDs.
