Dr. Andrew Affleck needed a few medical illustrations to help add to his presentation on the Mohs surgical technique. His visually rich presentation included fantastic patient case studies however lacked the appropriate visuals needed to illustrate the importances of the procedure. This was a pretty straightforward request and I set to work.
Dr. Affleck had been using placeholder images and sketches in areas where he wanted new illustrations. Having those examples were extremely useful as it gave us an idea of what he was looking for. Below is a rundown of the illustrations that were to be created:
Fig 1. Tissue cross section (with tumor) illustrating the beveled edge of the cross section
Fig 2. Illustration showing the procedure of vertical (breadloaf) sections being taken and parts of the cancer being missed by doing this method.
Fig 3. A series of illustrations showing the difference between the Mohs method in comparison to conventional skin excisions
Fig 4. Update design aesthetics of pie chat on slide 62 (untitled)
from sketch to final
Dr. Affleck had a clear idea of the kind of visuals he was looking for. He providing rough sketches that we could refer to and discuss at our kickoff meeting.
