Project Description

The intention is to educate an audience eager to learn about an uncommon pathology. Though the condition is rare, the impact on a patient and their family is large.The poster contains information about development at an embryonic stage. An image of the fetus at 24 weeks adds a connection back to a patient. There is symptom and treatment information, and a beginning guide for physicians to develop an understanding. Representing the treatment section is a portrait with an MRI image, the form of imaging used to develop a diagnosis. Insets describe the cortex layers. It is a comparison point, with information about the histology that is expected.Information about morphology and treatment are broken down into sections that are highlighted by images. This poster adds visualization to concepts not easily seen. Ultimately, by providing the information of the condition with patient-centric images, the purpose of this poster is to prepare practicing physicians.
