The best choice of equipment to obtain high quality standardised results in intra-oral photography - a comparison between the common practice in the UK and the gold standard set by the literature.
Authors: Marcato L, Sandler J Abstract Since digital technology made dental photography widely available, photographers have been trying to establish the 'gold standard' when obtaining intra-oral photographs. A basic knowledge of photographic principles, familiarity with particular dental techniques and a correct choice and use of equipment contribute significantly both to the standardisation and quality of photographs. A recent survey between members of the Institute of Medical Illustrators shed a light on the current practice in the UK. Medical photographers do not always have access to the full range of suitable...

Cancer Ward 12: art, medical science, literature and life.
Authors: Saorsa J Abstract Cancer Ward 12 is an ongoing creative project concerned with expressing and articulating, through art, the physical, emotional and social impact of a cancer diagnosis. The first stage of the project was carried out through an artist residency on the general oncology ward, locally known as Ward 12, at Singleton Hospital in Swansea, Wales, in November 2016, and this led to a public exhibition of artwork, launched in Swansea in May 2017. This paper focuses on the methodology and rationale behind the Cancer Ward 12 project, and on the nature of the relation between creative practice and medic...

The application of the Mayer multimedia learning theory to medical PowerPoint slide show presentations.
Authors: Grech V Abstract PowerPoint™ and other slideware have the potential to be overused and abused. Presentations should be tailored using scientifically derived principles in order to maximise teaching potential. This paper applies the Mayer Multimedia Learning Theory (with its twelve evidence-based principles of multimedia design) to medical slide show presentations. The best way to avoid audience boredom or mortification is to adhere to these precepts. Presentations stand or fall on the quality, relevance, and integrity of the content. Slide shows should supplement a presentation, and not substitute fo...

Store and forward Teledermatology - the Newport way.
This article illustrates the implementation process of the service, highlighting legal and ethical issues that were considered along with the success and scope of the service. The Teledermatology service rapidly reduced waiting times for patients and increased access to specialist care which is cost effective for the Health Board. Following successful implementation and increased demand, there is the scope for expansion. The service is developing additional Teledermatology clinics within the Health Board, evolving telemedicine.

Visual representation of medical information: the importance of considering the end-user in the design of medical illustrations.
Authors: Scheltema E, Reay S, Piper G Abstract This practice led research project explored visual representation through illustrations designed to communicate often complex medical information for different users within Auckland City Hospital, New Zealand. Media and tools were manipulated to affect varying degrees of naturalism or abstraction from reality in the creation of illustrations for a variety of real-life clinical projects, and user feedback on illustration preference gathered from both medical professionals and patients. While all users preferred the most realistic representations of medical information f...

Cross-polarised and parallel-polarised light: Viewing and photography for examination and documentation of biological materials in medicine and forensics.
Authors: Hanlon KL Abstract Cross-polarisation, with regard to visible light, is a process wherein two polarisers with perpendicular orientation to one another are used on the incident and reflected lights. Under cross-polarised light birefringent structures which are otherwise invisible become apparent. Cross-polarised light eliminates glare and specular highlights, allowing for an unobstructed view of subsurface pathology. Parallel-polarisation occurs when the polarisers are rotated to the same orientation. When cross- or parallel-polarisation is applied to photography, images can be generated which aid in visual...

Educational DVD for parents of children with congenital heart disease - a pilot study.
This study developed and evaluated an interactive DVD that helped parents to understand their child's CHD. A DVD describing four cardiac abnormalities was created using videos and Adobe Flash. The parents' knowledge was assessed via a questionnaire before and after receiving the DVD. A control group did not receive the DVD. The DVDs were successfully created and improved the parental knowledge of their child's cardiac anomaly. The pilot study suggests the need for further development of DVDs to describe additional abnormalities, whilst incorporating local management and outcomes. PMID: 29214893 [PubMed - as supplied by...

Photo-sharing social media for eHealth: analysing perceived message effectiveness of sexual health information on Instagram.
This study used an experiment to analyse how young adults (n = 839) perceive sexual health messages on Instagram. Participants were exposed to one of four conditions based on visual message presentation. Messages with embedded health content had the highest perceived message effectiveness ratings. Additionally, message sensation value, attitudes and systematic information processing were significant predictors of perceived message effectiveness. Implications for visual message design for electronic health are discussed. PMID: 29022412 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of Visual Communication in Medicine)

The visual framing of graphics when used in preventative health digital news packages: exploring the use of a narrative structure as the message infrastructure.
Authors: Sontag JM, Barnes SR Abstract Visual framing can improve health-message effectiveness. Narrative structure provides a template needed for determining how to frame visuals to maximise message effectiveness. Participants (N = 190) were assigned to a message condition determined by segments (establisher, initial, peak), graphic (static, animated) and cancer (lung, melanoma). ANOVAs revealed that melanoma was more believable than lung cancer with static graphics at the establisher and peak; narratives were more believable with animated graphics at the peak segment; melanoma elicited greater posit...

Statistically, adherence to medication is extremely low in adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM), therefore, this paper focuses on the research and design of an interactive and educational concept mobile application aimed at early to mid-adolescents to aid in their understanding of T1DM. As visual elements are an essential part of the design, this ...

Authors: Grech V Abstract The ability to write up research in the form of a paper is a crucial requisite for academics. The skills required are manifold and are acquired piecemeal during an individual's training. Matters would be facilitated by a short and intensive course that would cover all of these facets. Such a course would ideally be delivered by experienced writers and editors. It is for this very reason that WASP (Write a Scientific Paper) was created. WASP was held outside of Malta for the first time, in London. This paper describes the preparations required in order to plan and execute a course of this o...

High poly to low poly workflows for real-time rendering.
Authors: Webster NL Abstract This paper outlines a digital workflow that allows artists to add visual detail to 3D models whilst adhering to the strict polygonal budget that is vital to successfully render in real-time. Two versions of a model - a high-poly model, and a low-poly model - are produced to create a 2D normal map through a process known as 'baking', to achieve the illusion of the high resolution detail on the low-resolution model.
