Medical Illustrations

Medicine is an area of scientific and practical activities focused on studying and research of normal and pathological processes in a human body, detection of various diseases and pathological states, treatment, and prevention of these diseases, saving and enhancing the human's health. The modern medicine is actively developed, it explores both old and new diseases, researches new methods of treatment, discovers new medicines, procedures, equipment, and ways of medical diagnosis.

The visualization and illustration is an integral part of the knowledge presentation in a field of medicine and health. Various documents and posters explaining the medical facts, specifics and danger posed by certain diseases for the human body, describing the measures of prevention and treatment diseases, the medical articles in printed editions and on the websites, billboards of a medical nature, the presentations for teaching pupils and students, and for demonstration during scientific conferences, all this is impossible to imagine without bright and colourful illustrations, drawings, diagrams, infographics, and collages. The medical illustration and medical imaging are exactly those tools that help to convey the information as easier as possible, more fully, faster, more interesting and emotional, that will obligatory attract the audience’s attention, while the descriptive text by itself may seem quite boring. Moreover, a human thinks by imageries and exactly the pictures and illustrations are able to activate the imagination, to capture, fix and structure the information in a human's memory and to remain in it for a long time.

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the composition of libraries from the Medical Illustrations solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

Modern medicine offers many methods for diagnosing various diseases and dysfunctions, one of which is electrodiagnostics or electrodiagnostic testing, used to diagnose and treat disorders of the neurological, neuromuscular and muscle systems. The electrodiagnostics is a method of survey the functional state, functional disorders and possibilities of nerves, muscles, organs or systems, based on the measuring their reaction to external electrical irritation or passive registration the natural electrophysiology. This method is built on the ability of a neuromuscular system to switch into the state of excitation under the influence of irritation by electric current. In result of excitation occurs the muscle contraction, the nature of which depends on the functional state of the nerve or muscle and allows making conclusion about severity of the lesion. This sample demonstrates the most used methods of medical diagnosis and recording spontaneous electrical activity, and also common electrodiagnostic medicine devices: electroencephalograph (EEG), electrocardiograph (ECG), and electromyography (EMG).
