On Preparation of Illustrations for Scientific Publications on Traumatology and Orthopaedics

Abstract


Inadequate attention is paid to the preparation of quality illustrations for scientific publications on traumatology and orthopaedics. Review of the quality of 1221 pictures in three typical journals shows that the majority of patients’ photographs are made against the bad background, with presence of foreign objects, and the photos are made from the angle that does not allow making a reliable picture of function restoration. X-ray examination results and intraoperative photographs are not without disadvantages. Recommendations that can considerably improve the quality of the presenting illustrations and its informational content are given.
