Orthopedic Medical Illustrations
At the MSIC we have created Orthopedic illustrations specifically in order to visually explain the diagnosis and injury to the musculoskeletal system, as there are specific diseases and disorders that adversely affect the function and overall effectiveness of this system.
There is a need and a market for medical illustrations like these Orthopedic images because these illustrations can be used as ‘at-a-glance’ visual reference material to accompany the written text. These type of specialist illustrations are used primarily to help educate and describe the subject of orthopaedics for use by the general public, patients, students, and all users will benefit from understanding what the injuries and surgery look like and the treatment available.
Orthopedic Images will count as part of patient education and have been used on patient education websites, in textbooks, leaflets, manuals, TV adverts, publishing, advertising, marketing, medical device products.
rthopedics is the medical speciality that focuses on the diagnosis, correction, prevention, and treatment of patients with skeletal deformities and musculoskeletal disorders of the skeleton, bones, muscles, joints, cartilage, ligaments, tendon, nerves and connective tissues and even the skin with conditions such as dermatomyositis. This anatomy makes up what is termed as a skeleton (the skeletal system), muscles (muscular system) hence the musculoskeletal system.
rthopedic surgeons specialise in just this area of anatomy so that they can gain specific expertise when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of trauma or injury to the musculoskeletal system. This is because there are specific diseases and disorders that adversely affect the overall effectiveness of the musculoskeletal system. So the role of the orthopaedic surgeon will be to use both surgical and non-surgical treatment treating conditions such as sports injuries, spine disease to degenerative disorders, to muscle disease to fractures.
As a stock image provider, we offer a resource of full-colour images within the branch of orthopaedics. Our collection of Orthopedic illustrations offers customers the opportunity to purchase easy to use reference material presenting clinical orthopaedic matters in a clear and straightforward manner. The illustrations cover subjects of musculoskeletal anatomy both healthy and diseased. There are illustrations with an emphasis on minor orthopaedic procedures, disorders, physical exams, treatments and surgical procedures.
All the artwork has been created by professional medical artists who have been trained in human anatomy and therefore have the knowledge and understanding of orthopaedic anatomy that allows for the creation of accurate and precise drawings and educational visual materials.
Common Orthopedic Disorders
Common disorders to be treated are rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis that affect the joints. Joint issues can also result in elbow pain and cause problems such as medial epicondylitis or golfer's elbow, lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, or cubital tunnel syndrome. Surgeons will also treat fractures to the hip, lower back, ankle, hand and foot. Soft tissues conditions are included as part of a musculoskeletal system such as nerve issues like carpal tunnel syndrome and knee issues such as torn meniscus and ligaments and other soft tissue injuries of the joints.
Disorders of Muscles
Disorders of the musculoskeletal system can bring about impairment to a person’s movement, motion and control. Diseases can vary from conditions such as myasthenia gravis which is a long-term autoimmune disease that involves the production of antibodies that block acetylcholine receptors at the junction between the nerve and muscle. Face and neck muscles are affected, manifesting as drooping eyelids, double vision, difficulty swallowing and general fatigue. Other conditions of the musculoskeletal system can be cerebral palsy, mitochondrial myopathies, compartment syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, dermatomyositis
