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 production of beginner molecular biology animations...

Leading a team with a small or large number of people can be difficult and it requires time and experience to develop and apply the necessary skills. This paper includes a number of learning activities designed to start you off on the road to becoming a leader and to hone those skills through reflection.

Lauren Barnett
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...

Timothy Zoltie
This article reviews the use of mirrorless systems in medical photography, based on the author's experience using Sony mirrorless systems. It is not aimed at being an in depth comparative technical review but aims to discuss the technology as a viable alternative to the digital single lens reflex (DSLR) when documenting the most common subjects a medical photographer will face.

OBJECTIVE: While established methods for the calibration of visible light photographs are well defined, the use of these approaches in UVA reflectance photography is less well understood. A systematic, low-cost and simple method for the production of well-defined grey calibration standard targets for UVA reflectance photography, with a particular emphasis on low reflectivity surfaces, along with a comparison with standard visible light photographic standards is presented here. METHODS: Grey calibration standard targets suitable for use in the UVA region were produced, based on optimised methods from the literature...

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 in other medical and health professions...

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 are innately motivated to comprehend and understand information...

Mobile technology has been a significant development. With the advent of smartphones and many applications, it is possible to integrate endoscopic instruments. This is a study where the authors were able to use a smartphone as the capturing device for endoscopic examinations and were able to get satisfactory results on all but two of the 52 patients, doing four endoscopic examinations commonly being performed in otolaryngology clinics: rigid nasal endoscopy, rigid laryngoscopy, otoscopy and flexible fiberoptic naso-laryngoscopy...

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 equipment...

The optic pathway is responsible for sending visual information from the eyes to the brain via electrical impulses. It is essential that a sound understanding of this pathway is established in order to determine an accurate diagnosis concerning visual field defects. Although easy for trained neurologists to understand, it is an area which medical students repeatedly struggle to visualise. It is proposed that audio-visual teaching resources can improve students understanding of complex areas of importance. This article describes the development and evaluation of a short animation created for use in the undergraduate neurology curriculum at the University of Dundee School of Medicine...
