How designers make better healthcare

Let’s start here…

These amazing fruit and vegetable images are made using hightech medical imaging. I came across them at Inside Insides website when looking for more about yet another very interesting project called Transparent Radiology.

Transparent Radiology is a project from Leiden Medical University funded by NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) to research about how design can improve doctor-patient communication. They are developing a whole new way of informing – and involving – patients during treatment and care. Exploring ways to explain radiology diagnostics using other nature wonders (than the human body) is just one way of doing it!

They will present their work at the Innovation for Health 2015 on February 5 in Amsterdam. I’ll be there!
