Institute of Medical Illustrators (IMI) award for our medical artwork

Illustration of head anatomy

I’m super excited to announce that one of our illustration series has won a Silver IMI award in last year’s Manchester conference. View some of the other entries here.

I was not expecting such a positive response and support from my colleagues and the school. I did a small interview that’s available for you to read on the University of Dundee Medical School website.

In brief I’m happy to say that all the digital illustrations created, such as the head series above, are released on a creative commons license that allows for free educational use. We want to encourage others to use our resources too. Check them out:

Interactive 3D Ear Model Using Sketchfab

I’m very excited to share with you something that I’ve been working on during the winter months here at TILT, an interactive 3D model of the anatomy of the inner ear.

This interactive is part of a larger project that includes a series of illustrations depicting the anatomy of the ear. Stay tuned for those images on the blog in the upcoming weeks.

In the meantime, go on, have a click and a spin around:

About this model

Certain aspects of this model were created from segmented MRI data*, making this a highly accurate representation of the tympanic membrane, facial nerve, ossicles and vestibular system.

This work “Anatomy of the Inner Ear”, is a derivative of “3D Ear” by W. Robert J. Funnell, PhD; Sam Daniel, MD, CM; and Daren Nicolson, MD, CM at McGill University, used under CC BY-NC-SA 1.0. “Anatomy of the Inner Ear” is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0.

*The vestibulocochlear nerve was not derived from MRI data, however heavily referenced.

You can locate the segmented MRI data from the following: http://audilab.bmed.mcgill.ca/~daren/3Dear/index.html

Our New TILT Intern: Marissa Krebs, MSc Medical Art

We are super excited to introduce to you our newest addition to the TILT team, fellow medical artist Marissa Krebs.

Marissa hails from the land across the pond, good old U.S of A and has spent the last year studying for her Master’s in Medical Art at the University of Dundee. For the last couple of months Marissa has been working with us at TILT to produce some really cool Neuroanatomy graphics in the style of the London Underground Subway Map.

The brain child for this project was by one of our 4th year medical students, Alan Muhyaldeen. We’re pretty stoked that he came to us with this idea and incredibly happy with the collaborative effort of both Marissa and Alan. 

Check out the results of Marissa’s awesome visual work below:
