Breaking down apoptosis: animating programmed cell death in 3D for a pathology curriculum.
Authors: Thouvenot-Nitzan E, Oparka R, Campbell A, Erolin C Abstract Contemporary medical education is expected to keep up with the rapidly expanding corpus of medical scientific knowledge to train informed doctors. Swift communication and assimilation of complex concepts are required, yet traditional teaching methods are often suboptimal means to this end. This paper details the making of a concise 3D animation on the apoptotic pathways, designed to improve first-year undergraduate medical students' grasp of cell signalling. A simplified visual language was adopted to increase the effectiveness and expedite the pr...

Alienation and beauty in medical photography.
Authors: Barnett L Abstract Though photography was initially touted to overtake medical illustration as a more objective medium, today photographs are underused in medical texts. The concern with aesthetics and the relationship between the body and the patient combined to shape the future of medical photography, and in some ways medicine itself. Closely examining two cases - Duchenne's 'Mécanisme de la Physionomie Humaine' (1856), and Grant's 'An Atlas of Anatomy' (1962) - I consider the role of alienation and beauty in medical photography and the evocative questions each raised in medical history. This is a...

Health risk communication message comprehension is influenced by image inclusion.
Authors: Manno FAM, Lively MB, Manno SHC, Cheng SH, Lau C Abstract The impact of images on risk communications such as public service announcements is unknown. Whether images contained within a printed message such as a food safety warning alters the comprehension of the underlying text, has not previously been explored. The present study examined three factors of a risk communication in the print form: (1) the role images play in promoting comprehension of risk messages, (2) how demographic variables such as gender impacts message reception and (3) the need for cognition, or the degree to which some individuals ar...

Evaluating the readability levels of medical infographic materials for public consumption.
Authors: Royal KD, Erdmann KM Abstract Readability is an important element of any published material. In recent years, various health organisations have utilised infographics to communicate important medical information. Established guidelines for readability suggest levels should be targeted between a 4th and 6th grade education level (United States) in order to avoid disadvantaging individuals with lower literacy skills. The purpose of this case study was to evaluate the readability levels of several published materials from the field of athletic training and demonstrate a model for evaluating readability levels ...

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.

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...

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.

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)
