Corbis is offering an extensive collection of

with MedicalRF, a creator of high quality medical images.
The new service
offers thousands of medical and life sciences digital illustrations covering

are often the best way to engage people on health issues and to educate them
about preventative care and treatment options," said Ross Sutherland, Chief
Creative Officer, Corbis. "This new collection features digitally produced
illustrations that are visually compelling and that make finding appropriate
images to illustrate the majority of medical anatomy and concepts a lot
easier than ever before.”
MedicalRF, based in Dublin, Ireland, specializes in creating digital
images that traditional photography cannot produce. The company uses
cutting-edge technology to develop realistic and stylized three dimensional
(3D) images that are designed particularly for medical anatomy and concepts.
The imagery is so realistic that it is difficult to discern if it is
computer-generated or actual photography.
Images from the collection are typically licensed for a variety of
advertising, educational and other uses by professionals in life sciences,
medical, pharmaceutical, biotech advertising and communications industries
as well as the editorial and publishing sectors.
“This collection specializes in different types of medical images that
appeal to different types of customers and meet their individual needs,”
said Niall Johnston, Vice President of Business Development, MedicalRF.
