about

Medical Visuals produces medical scientific visualizations mainly distinguished by a clear, concise style. The strength of Medical Visuals is to translate complex issues onto a communicative and accessible image, without doing violence to reality.

Additionally Medical Visuals is distinctive in customer focus, short term delivery, experience and several digital techniques. Depending on the contract and the nature of the information we work with various styles that result in Graphic Illustrations, Graphic Plastic images & 3D visuals and 3D animations.

The clients include the Dutch Journal of Medicine, the Dutch College of General Practitioners, Quest Magazine, many Universities and Hospitals, the Academic Centre of Dentistry, Veterinary Institutions, different Educational Publishers and brain researcher and neurologist Dick Swaab.

The driving force behind Medical Visuals is Medical & Scientific visualizer Maartje Kunen. She graduated Cum Laude from the Post Graduated Course in Scientific Illustration: part of the Academy of Fine Arts and the Faculty of Medicine of Maastricht University. Her fascination for biomedical subject matter results that she is always alert to new developments in this field.

After graduation Maartje Kunen worked at the “Vrije Universiteit” in Amsterdam as a medical illustrator from 2003 until 2008. In addition, she also worked as a freelance Medical & Scientific visualizer. From 2008 until now she works as a full time Medical & Scientific visualizer in her own company.

breast screening | Big serie of illustrations made for an instruction manual for mammography radiologists. A good positioning of the breast in the mammograph is essential for the detection of breast cancer tumors. These illustrations were created in close cooperation with Cary van Landsveld-Verhoeven. The use of illustrations in stead of photographs focusses on the correct positioning of the breast in the mammograph. The use of photographs would cause a lot of distraction and the essence of the image would not be communicated in an optimal way. The illustrations rendered in one style ensures serenity in the book. The use of renders of a 3D model of a mammograph made it possible to create a large number of illustrations within the available budget.
