ANATOMICAL ILLUSTRATION OF THE SUPERFICIAL ARTERIES OF THE HAND

AND THE PHENOMENON OF RAYNAUD

The aim of the illustration was to illustrate the superficial arterial arch of the hand and the arteries in the digits in order to show changes in blood flow in the phenomenon of Raynaud.

 

Both illustrations are based on a dip pen and ink drawing that was further modified in Adobe Photoshop. Reference for the illustrations were drawings made of different dissected hands in the dissection room as well as anatomy atlases and textbooks. Based on aesthetic aspects as well as clarity and readability of the illustrations, two separate illustrations were made. One is an illustration of the phenomenon of Raynaud, the other one is a labelled drawing, mainly focussing on the superficial arterial blood supply.
