illustration of This cardiology journal illustration about the endovascular options for the treatment of stroke was a cover feature article. It depicts the relationship between the internal carotid, cerebral arteries and brain.
illustration of The cervical ripening balloon is used for mechanical dilation of the cervical canal prior to labor induction at term when the cervix is unfavorable for induction. This piece was used originally for product marketing, but has subsequently been used in medical certification products and patient education.
illustration of Hernias and abdominal wall defects can benefit from the immediate and long-term strength provided by biological grafts. The image was used by the graft manufacturer to show placement options for the biological graft including onlay, retromuscular, preperitoneal and intraperitoneal placement.
illustration of Occipital Nerve Stimulation (ONS) therapy consists of applying mild electrical stimulation to the nerves via wires implanted just under the skin, near the occipital nerves at the base of the head. The wires are connected to an implanted battery that generates the stimulation, which interferes with pain signals and may evoke the sensation of tingling or paresthesia. This illustration was created as a 3D image with 2D illustration enhancements.
illustration of Perineuronal nets form during postnatal development, marking the end of what’s known as the “critical period” of heightened brain plasticity. PNNs are composed of extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules and are responsible for synaptic stabilization in the adult brain. Increasingly, researchers are turning to PNNs as potential targets to enhance plasticity for the treatment of various diseases. This illustration was created for a magazine cover.
illustration of Cardiogenic shock occurs when the heart can't pump enough blood to the body. Cardiogenic shock is the leading cause of death in acute myocardial infarction. Symptoms of cardiogenic shock include rapid breathing and heartbeat (tachycardia), mental confusion, sweating, weak pulse and poor tissue perfusion.
illustration of A biological graft is used to repair skull base surgery defects after brain tumors are removed.
illustration of Endovascular thrombectomy has been shown to benefit patients with acute stroke and large-vessel occlusions. This illustration was created for a journal article tracking to what extent these technologies have taken off, and to what extent interventional cardiologists are actuall
illustration of The hiatus is an opening in the diaphragm (the muscular wall separating the chest cavity from the abdomen). Typically, the esophagus goes through the hiatus and attaches to the stomach. In a hiatal hernia the stomach bulges up into the chest through that opening. This illustration depicts a hernia repair with a graft.
illustration of This image was created for an interventional cardiology journal cover article on radial artery access for diagnostic coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PCI is a non-surgical procedure used to treat narrowing of the coronary arteries.
illustration of Drug-coated balloons for the treatment of peripheral artery disease have the potential to reduce the incidence of restenosis without having to leave anything behind.
illustration of Journal cover image about the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy following angioplasty. Antiplatelet medicines work to keep platelets from sticking together and forming blood clots. There have been many recent studies debating whether shorter or longer courses of dual antiplatelet therapy are better for patients after arterial stents.
illustration of The outside of the bone consists of a layer of connective tissue called the periosteum. The outer shell of the long bone is compact bone with a deeper layer of cancellous bone (spongy bone) which contains red bone marrow. The interior part of the long bone is the medullary cavity with the inner core of the bone cavity being composed of yellow marrow. This image was used in patient education materials.
illustration of Carotid stenosis is a condition in which the carotid arteries become narrowed or blocked. This image was used for a medical journal cover.
illustration of Ticks can transmit disease-causing pathogens through the process of feeding on a host animal. This illustration was used in veterinary marketing materials.
illustration of Atherectomy is a minimally invasive endovascular technique for removing plaque build-up from blood vessels in the heart and in other areas of the body. In catheter-directed atherectomy, an interventional radiologist uses a catheter to reach the site of the blockage and either cut, shave, sand or vaporize the clot with lasers.
illustration of These illustrations were created for a medical device company to describe common spinal disc injuries.  Intervertebral discs act as cushions between vertebrae in the spine. Degenerative disc disease is a term used to describe the changes to spinal discs as we age. When a disc bulges, it can put pressure on the spinal nerves, causing pain. In herniated discs, the jelly-like fluid within the disc leaks out due to a rupture in the annulus. This also causes pressure on the spinal nerves and pain.
illustration of Dislocation is an uncommon, but potential complication to hip replacement surgery. This illustration demonstrates the failure of a metal on metal hip implant.
illustration of Spinal fusion is the most widely performed surgery for scoliosis. This illustration was used to demonstrate a spinal fixation device for correction of posterior spine defects.
illustration of Cardiology journal illustration depicting the human cardiovascular system including the heart and major arteries and veins.
illustration of Postpartum hemorrhage is consistently one of the top three causes of maternal mortality and is often the leading cause of maternal death even in developed countries. This balloon tamponade device creates pressure on the uterine wall to help stop bleeding after delivery.
illustration of Skin is made up of two layers that cover a third fatty layer. This skin cross section includes the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. It includes nerves, sweat glands, oil glands, and hair follicles. The image was used in patient education materials.
illustration of Esophagogastric fundoplication procedure to relieve chronic acid reflux caused by gastroesophogeal valve defect to treat hiatal hernias.
illustration of The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a collection of specific cells and proteins that control the movement of molecules from the blood to the central nervous system (CNS).
illustration of Otitis externa refers to an inflammation of the dog's outer ear, which is commonly caused by bacterial or yeast infection.  This illustration was created to demonstrate the mode of action (MOA) for a veterinary company’s new ointment.
illustration of Pedicle osteotomy device system to help correct spinal stenosis.
illustration of Packaging illustrations to help patients correctly handle and use an oral pharmaceutical film.
illustration of Journal cover illustration about the use of drug-coated balloons to treat occluded below-the-knee arteries.
illustration of 3D ProFuse Bioscaffold is a demineralized bone scaffold shaped to take advantage of natural cancellous bone properties. This illustration was created for a biopharmaceutical company to demonstrate a new product that stimulates bone formation for bone grafts.

Profile

Lisa Clark was born with the heart and soul of an artist, but the brain of a biomedical scientist. She combined her seemingly disparate gifts by completing her Masters degree and becoming a Certified Medical Illustrator (CMI). Now with over 20 years of professional experience, Lisa has won awards for her medical illustrations and graphic design. She also has extensive experience in art direction, interactive media design, 2D animation, and technology project management. Her passion is using her beautifully realistic, anatomically-correct drawings to visually translate complex medical and scientific information for her clients. Over the years, her work has been used in countless textbooks, medical journals, trade and consumer publications, educational posters and brochures, advertisements, and promotional websites. She is President and principal creative for Clark Medical Illustration, a full-service biomedical communications company in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
