I’ve been following the progression of a company called Blausen for over a year now. Some of you might remember my post about the Blausen Medical Content Google Chrome Extension.

Previously, the home page of Blausen did little to illustrate the really amazing work they’d done creating various medical related animated videos. However, they’ve gone through a redesign that really captures the beauty of what they’ve created. If you enjoy amazing animations of anatomy and physiology, then you’ll really enjoy the Blausen videos.

I’ll be interested to see what Blausen does with all of these videos. I’m still skeptical that this will work as a standalone website. I feel like it needs to be integrated with another product to be really valuable. With that said, I’m told that they’ve already had 2 million hits and 50,000 videos watched in last 30 days. So, maybe there is a business that can be built around high quality anatomy videos.

I’d be interested to hear what doctors think of these videos. Would you use them with your patients? Could these be useful in medical education?
