Tarlov Cyst Animation

The tarlov cyst animation presented unique challenges.  The video was created in collaboration with multiple neurosurgeons, who often did not agree on how anatomical features should be depicted.  The main surgeon had, in his own years of surgical experience, seen views of the tarlov cyst which did not coincide with the textbook description.  Eventually my team and I was able to create visuals which preserved traditional understanding while remaining authentic to the surgeon’s experience.

This explains in minutes what it usually takes hours or more to understand!
