Muscle anatomy is an amazing complex system of the human body and its purpose is to allow movement of the body, it maintains posture and circulates blood throughout the body. There are three types of muscles in the human body classified as skeletal muscle, smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. Skeletal muscles are attached to the skeleton and attach via ligaments which is a fibrous connective tissue which connects two bones or cartilages or holds together a joint. Smooth muscle is controlled directly by the autonomic nervous system and is involuntary and is located in the internal organs such as the digestive system, respiratory system, blood vessels, and bladder. Cardiac muscle is distinct because the muscle fibers are laterally striated to each other.
At this medical art studio, we use anatomical facts such as these to enable us to accurately illustrate the anatomy producing illustrations that are lifelike and meet scientific standards. Illustrating what essentially is the unseen anatomy beneath the skin, medical illustration can be an essential part of teaching and education. Its purpose is to convey the message of education and are colourful and attractive imagery to promote any type of written medical text, publishing and used across many medical and scientific areas of marketing.
The medical artist.com team work full time as a provider of communications within the field medicine and science, and you can contact us anytime to discuss any project requirements.
