Corbis offers royalty free medical illustrations

27 November 2007

Corbis is offering an extensive collection of specialised royalty-free medical illustrations through a new partnership with MedicalRF, a creator of high quality medical images.

The new service offers thousands of medical and life sciences digital illustrations covering subjects including microscopic organisms, human anatomy, disease states and medical devices. This is the first time that this extensive and unusual type of imagery is available royalty-free through a major global imagery provider. Royalty-free gives unlimited use for a one-off payment.

“Images 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.
