In 2001, our founder, Assoc. Prof. Pete Smith recalls spending 3 hours online trying to obtain reasonable images of a glass of milk, an egg and a peanut, for a talk on food allergy. What he obtained were several images that were not copyright released, they required reformatting for use in his presentation and they did not sit together well visually. With his background in medical education and multimedia, he realised that he was not the only person facing this problem and there was a market in creating disease and speciality themed resource kits.
In creating our kits we have developed a high level expert network in the area of image resources that include histology, anatomy, pathology, electron microscopy, clinical photography and videography, microbiology and radiology. We have also created large asset base in 3D models.
medicalmediakits.com has produced 12 media kits, several educational and training DVDs, and has evolved to create studio services in illustration and animations. These services are used internationally and are very cost competitive with their skill base in medical education and molecular immunology, expert resource network, 3D model library and expertise in project management.
Over the years we have amassed a large number of medical illustrations (in both 2D & 3D), animations, powerpoint slides & templates, clinical images, histology, radiology and more. In 2009 we created our on-line media store - MedicalPix.
Our medical image store now contains over 5000 individual medical media items. This number is growing daily as we partner with medical professionals worldwide, to create for our clients a medical media resource which is unparalelled both in terms of scope & quality.
