As an organisation, we receive surgical images from a variety of specialities from surgeons all over the world. We are very grateful for this: it helps us to continuously develop medical devices designed for the need surgeons have, as well as confirming that the designs we have launched perform as intended.
The images form a library of knowledge and education, and we have recently donated some of our images to The Royal College of Surgeons in the United Kingdom, to support their efforts to build a gender and ethnicity-balanced photo library, an initiative we are fully behind.
If you have images of surgery with our Galaxy II surgical retractor, especially in ENT, Hernia, Orthopaedics or Plastic Surgery, we would be most grateful to receive them (if possible and appropriate, in line with law and regulation in the relevant locations). They can be emailed to email@example.com or uploaded to the JUNE MEDICAL app (on App Store and Google Play).
Royal College Images for Academic Presentations: Using ClinicalKey
A picture is worth a thousand words, and the right image can greatly enhance any academic presentation. Often, however, the time and effort required to find the right image can be overwhelming, resulting in text-heavy presentations and subpar images.
ClinicalKey is a “Google-style” search engine that searches e-books, online journals, and databases to return the most relevant results for a query. In addition, ClinicalKey gives you access to millions of images and videos which can be saved for future use or exported and copied directly into your presentation.
Anatomy as Art
Anatomical drawings have often been viewed as art. The display focuses on images from our collections that do not always make easy viewing but can be considered artistically accomplished.
When it comes to art and drawing, there are certain areas that people have trouble with. Some people have trouble with still life, some have trouble with nature and others have trouble with depicting humans.
We see humans every day. We live with human bodies every second of our lives. But who actually knows, and we mean, really knows their own body? There is so much to the human anatomy. We live with human bodies, but so much of our own bodies are still a mystery to us. Since we do not take the time to understand our body, what it’s comprised of and how it works, it can be difficult to get the body right when it comes to depicting it through art.
