Venturing Into Medical Animation
3D animation is a special gift for the audio-visual media because it is able to widen the perspective of not only of the creators but also of the viewers. By the addition of a new dimension, 3D Modal animation is able to render graphics and sequences as though they are in real-life. Now this makes for a very entertaining time in theater houses for movies as this brings moviegoers close to the characters. But in medical animation, this ability of 3D animation takes on a more serious tone.
Medical animation rendered in 3D allows doctors to see parts of the human anatomy which they can only imagine, read in books or see when done in an actual operation on a human flesh. However, there are no second takes in key parts of medicine such as surgery or even forensic analysis. The stakes are higher because human life depends on their actual depiction using 3D animation.
Using 3D animation, doctors can study why a certain part of the body is malfunctioning by trying to deduce the source of the ailment. It can also serve as a guide for very delicate surgery. Here are the different applications of medical animation:
– Interactive models of the human body on both macroscopic and microscopic, interior and exterior scales;
– Interpretation of patient data into 3D Modal visual images;
– Demonstration of how pharmaceutical drugs work in the bloodstream and body;
– Creation of instructional materials for medical students;
– Demonstration of surgical techniques in virtual representation;
– Breakdowns of how medical equipment/proposed medical equipment will work.
The versatility of 3D animation in medical animation has significantly aided in uplifting the quality of medical animation. Doctors no longer have to rely on little illustrations of the human body in textbooks. This also paves the way for an error-free experience for those who have to enter into surgery.
Medical animation has also been used as a show reel for those in the medicine industry specifically the ones into pharmaceuticals and medical equipments. Because it can be quite stressful to test the medicines and equipments in an investor meeting, medical animation can do the pitching while still giving a credible and an organized aura for the company.
However, with all these perks of medical animation, it does not come easy for the animator. It takes intensive research and further study in order to precisely replicate human anatomy. If you’ve seen those huge medical books, then you would have an idea of how cumbersome it can be to learn all the intricacies of the human body. Besides, there is the pressure that doctors will be using these as guides, either for surgery or research, thus the results have to be very, very realistic.
Medical animation, on the other hand, can be a very lucrative job for those who have thoroughly earned a good reputation for this expertise. Because of its difficulty and the limited nature of medical animators, this can be a very rewarding job position – but only if you approach it with intense passion and dedication.
