3D Medical Illustration Process

An In-Depth Understanding

3D medical illustrations are useful elements that help explain human anatomy and physiology; making it easier to understand diseases, pathologies, injuries and treatment options. Ghost Productions is a medical illustration company that works in the field of computer rendering of human anatomy and science illustration. Our medical illustration services focus on increasing the medical illustration quality while significantly reducing the time and expense of delivering images for brochures, large-format prints, surgical manuals, product packaging, medical graphics for websites, and other digital or physical displays.

The medical illustrators at Ghost Productions are talented artists with specialized education and training in medicine and science. They have an in-depth understanding of complex biomedical processes and the ability to create accurate visualizations like digital medical illustrations that are informative and engaging. By working in a collaborative process with physicians, scientists, and content specialists, our medical illustration company creates medical illustrations used for patient education, training tools, scientific research, public relations efforts and marketing campaigns.3D computer rendering revolutionized the creation of digital medical illustrations by medical illustration companies. The resulting images are more accurate. A talented medical illustrator creates these images in a fraction of the time at a lower cost when compared to traditional medical illustration. Furthermore, it takes less effort and expense to modify medical digital illustrations on a computer (e.g., surgical instruments can be replaced and camera angles can be changed).Ghost Productions capitalizes on the power of computer-rendered medical illustrations for the benefit of our clients by making it easy to capture single frames from the animation. Because animation runs at 30 frames per second, this means that every minute of animation we produce contains the equivalent of 1,800 high-definition medical illustrations. Each frame also serves as an individual scientific illustration if desired, at no additional charge. Contact our medical illustration company today to start your medical illustration project.

Ghost Productions creates surgical manuals with greater quality, for a lower budget, and completes the work under a tighter deadline than is possible using traditional medical illustration or photography. Whether you need 3D medical graphics to supplement a medical journal, a product brochure, or something as large as a billboard or city bus, we can produce it and make it the most striking exhibit of your product imaginable.


Pharmaceutical companies make extensive use of biomedical illustrations in their marketing materials and product information guides. Medical illustrations appear in journals, textbooks, and trade or consumer publications. By rendering the medical graphics in 3D, they can become part of an interactive learning experience or a mobile application.

Lawyers use medical illustrations to inform judges and juries about complex medical information in personal injury lawsuits and medical malpractice cases.

Anatomical Illustrations

As technology becomes more and more advanced, the medical field is greatly improving its operations. One compelling example of this is the implementation of anatomical illustrations that can provide those in the medical industry a more detailed look into some parts of the human anatomy that cannot be otherwise captured through traditional photography.Anatomical illustrations are a realistic depiction of human anatomy through the usage of digital technology. Artists in our medical illustration studio are trained in various medical sciences to take data and create detailed illustrations that can effectively showcase different sides of human anatomy at virtually any scale. These 3D Medical Illustrations allow extra features like zooming in on more obscure areas of the human body and accurately representing them in a digital image.

Why Choose Anatomical Illustrations?

Digital arts offer many different types of media that can help a healthcare institution, so why choose an anatomical illustration?

A human anatomy illustration is commonly used for surgical technique manuals, brochures, training guides, and any other resources that would require some type of visual representation of the human body:

- Scientific charts
- Graphs and diagrams
- iBooks and other educational resources
- Presentations, etc,

As opposed to photography, medical illustrations can convey virtually every single aspect of the human body clearly, and greatly improve the understanding of the medical concepts. The results are high-end visual creations that support a healthcare’s institution’s various goals, such as:

Improving training – anatomical illustrations can improve the medical staff training, and accurately depict various processes, such as creating a visual step-by-step depiction of a surgery technique, or a guide to training staff members on using new tools, programs, etc.

Supporting patient communication – medical illustrations can greatly help doctors and other experts in the medical field improve their communications efforts with their patients. These illustrations can be used to “transcribe” complex issues relating to the patient’s health, and help increase their understanding of their own health, as well as the procedures or treatment they will have;

Assisting marketing efforts – a good anatomical illustration can also be designed to be integrated into an advertising campaign meant to promote the clinic’s services, or even just spread awareness regarding certain medical issues the community faces. This can help make the marketing message more effective, which ensure the campaign is successful;

Attracting investors, donors – institutions that sometimes need to rely on donations or must attract investors can struggle to translate complex medical information to individuals with little to no medical knowledge. However, since medical illustrations provide an accurate visual depiction of the human body, presentations that integrate these designs can be easier to understand even by such individuals.
