Using Images for Social Media Push Infographic

Using Images for Social Media Push Infographic

The old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” is even truer today with the rise of social media. When we use sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest the images are what grabs our attention. Instead of telling me about your trip on Facebook, show me the pictures so that I can see for myself. When tweeting don’t tell me you meet a celebrity, post the picture. On Pinterest it is easier to make a recipe when you see the image of what it is supposed to look like. Images are important to social media sites and to any website to keep the viewers interested.

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B+

This infographic discusses the importance of images by putting together many different images into a well-constructed infographic. The top header showing the different forms of cameras and how those have changed so much over the years demonstrates the change in how instant images are available. Instead of doing screenshots of the different social media sites the images that were used to portray these sites were very accurate. The themes matched that of their social media counterparts. I do have to say that at times it felt like there was too much going on and I was not sure where to read next. And really for an infographic about images and their importance, some of the images were not very exciting. I did enjoy that one of the percentages was show as the lens of the camera that was colored in. Overall though a nice looking infographic that really conveyed the message of how important images are to social media and websites.

Infographic Information: A

The information in this infographic is interesting because it really discusses the importance of a good image on your site. Pinterest has done so well because a large majority of its site is made up of high quality pictures. The infographic pointed out that Facebook has realized the importance of images and has purchased Instagram. Instagram is an app that allows users to take pictures and format them any way they would like before sharing with their friends. The discussion of how images affect articles was great because as someone who writes blogs I know that it is extremely important to have an image if you want your post to get read. The image grabs the attention of the reader and leads them to the article. I was not surprised to see the statistic that 67% of consumers said that a product image is important in selecting a product. We all know that as consumers we want to see something before we buy it so having an image available online is just expected now. The information was interesting and very informative about the importance of images on sites especially social media sites.

How MRI Scans Work – Infographic

How MRI Scans Work – Infographic

Visualisations-in-Medicine-MRI Hi-Res

This infographic is about MRI scans work.  It also contains some information about the history of MRIs.  Usually, we try to break our reviews into subheadings, but this is a sort of free-flowing piece, so I’m just going to to with it.

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging – used to take high quality pictures of the insides of humans.  It was invented in 1977 by a guy named Raymond Damadian.  A photograph of an MRI shows a technician, a patient, the machine itself, and the motorized table that slides the patient into the MRI Scanning tube.  Ooh.  We can do headings after all.  Here we go:

The Inner Workings of an MRI

The MRI Scanning Tube consists of a radio frequency transmitter and receiver that sends and receives radio signals, a main magnetic coil that creates a uniform magnetic field, and x, y, and z magnetic coils that create varying magnetic fields.  These are pointed out on a diagram of the MRI.

A Step by Step Guide

Since the human body is 60-70% water, and water is made up of hydrogen and oxygen, and hydrogen atoms have protons that spin naturally, the MRI works by creating a uniform magnetic field around the patient, causing his or her hydrogen protons to spin and align with the magnetic field.  The radio signal transmitter then sends out radio wave pulses of varying frequencies, and when the frequency matches the frequency of the spinning proton, the energy wave is absorbed by the proton, causing the proton to tilt out of alignment with the magnetic field.  The pulse ends, and the proton returns to the alignment of the magnetic field, and the leftover signal is picked up by the receiver.

The hydrogen protons in the human body emit different types of waves, depending on what and where they are.  The computer in the MRI can tell the difference between bone and blood, for example, and cancerous tissue emits a longer signal than non-cancerous tissue.  The computer matches up all the signals to the different parts of the body, and is able to detect when a signal is abnormal.  In a scan output, different colors mean there are differences in tissue type, and the MRI creates an image of the body using the location data and tissue type data.

Uses

MRIs are used to detect tumors, cysts, hemorrhages, torn ligaments, brain infections, and more.  Radio waves have less energy than X-rays, making them less harmful than X-rays or CT scans.

Risks

So far, nobody has proved that there can be any lasting health damage from an MRI.  In the past, before certain protocols were implemented, patients experienced  wounds related to unsecured metal objects in the room, or metal objects inside the patient, getting drawn into the magnetic field and causing injury.

Design:  C-

Not attractive, and somewhat hard to read at the top.

Information:  B+

Explains the MRI very well.
