Intraventricular hemorrhages in premature infants

Intraventricular hemorrhages in premature infants

This illustration depicts the cause and symptoms of Intraventricular hemorrhages(IVH) in premature infants. The audience of the illustration is parents of patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the University of Illinois Hospital. The purpose of this illustration is to educate parents about the danger of their children developing IVH. The problem with the resources the client previously used to explain the condition was that the only visuals they had were MRI data and illustration from only one view. These made it hard for parents with no medical background to visualize the condition. To tackle this issue, 3D modeling was utilized to show the accurate three dimensional representation of the premature baby brain, including the developing ventricles and germinal matrix. An infant brain is shown from various views including cross sections and callouts to describe the condition. A traditional style of illustration is used to not overwhelm patients.
