Those in the medical field don’t learn how to deal with the ailments of the body through just theory alone. They have to have visual examples in order to understand what they will have to work with. While working on cadavers and dead bodies is the usual hands-on answer, what if such things are not on hand? That’s where medical illustrations come in. With detailed images of the organs, the bones, and even our blood stream,  in medical illustrations give a clear and concise view of what we usually can’t see. Medical editorial illustrations  combine scientific accuracy with artistic license. Usually seen in either journals/magazines or articles, medical editorials can become a bridge between medical illustration and anatomical art.
