Project Description

This image was created as part of a larger project that illustrates various organ pathologies and their contribution to lower back pain. The series was delivered as a slide show, and must engage the reader while summarizing each condition.

Readers that have landed on this content are predicted to be in the ‘Diagnosis Phase’ of their patient journey, and have reached a highschool or college level of education. They are generally looking to connect their symptoms to information they find online.  Because of this, it was important to show the abnormal growth of endometrium, where those places are in relation to the body, and where pain may be felt.

The illustration was created in collaboration with the content editor.
