Here you'll find interesting links to medical illustration sites. It's not simple to find something really well done concerning anatomy and medicine illustration artworks. If You know something please e mail me. My favourite is Vesalius and I think it should be considered the best site for a medical doctor and for a medical illustrator because you can compare drawings and reality. Any feedback is really appreciated. Thank you for visiting the rest of my site.

The Clinical Folios are a collection of graphical educational narratives on surgical anatomy and procedures designed for online reference and study. Unless otherwise noted, all Vesalius narratives and discussions are written by medical professionals. Content in the Vesalius Clinical Folios is arranged by topic and presented under five headings: Narratives, Discussions, Thumbnails, Transparencies, and Quizzes. A must.
The Visible Human Project, developed by the National Library of Medicine, is a library of digital images for clinical medicine and biomedical research. It includes digitized photographic images derived from transverse computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance images (MRI) and anatomical cryo-section images of male and female cadavers. The images are used in teaching as a substitute for medical school cadavers to rehearse surgical procedures, and in research for the segmentation, classification and deformable registration of medical images. The data sets are designed to serve as a common reference point for testing medical imaging algorithms. They are being used for education, diagnosis and treatment planning by 1,400 licensees in 41 countries. Efforts are underway to develop standards for description and representation of image-based structural-anatomical data in order to link it to text-based functional-physiological data as a unified resource.

Very hight quality site. Nucleus creates custom medical illustration for a wide range of media and audience levels. From medical publishing to product advertising, medical illustration is the core Nucleus strength. Nucleus creates dramatic, informative two- and three-dimensional medical animations for broadcast, video and electronic media. Three-dimensional (3D) medical animations create the illusion of depth using photorealistic object and environment rendering. 3D medical animations are ideal for demonstrating detailed spatial relationships or realistic subject matter.
