Medical illustrations use simple drawing styles to demonstrate shapes and features of organs and organ systems, while omitting irrelevant details. In this contribution, we present a non-photorealistic rendering algorithm for illustrating anatomical data. Unlike other existing methods that rely on available triangulations of the organs to be rendered, our approach relies only on a subset of surface points, together with their normals. The advantage is that surface points and normals can be quite easily extracted from medical data, without an intermediate triangulation.
