sounds like layout and previs would be good things to research...
previs is a way of working out either how things work on set, ie how far away things have to be from camera, lines of sight etc. It is also a way to quickly layout anim of what will happen when it comes to doing the shot for real.
this might explain. but this is more of an animatic tbh.

If you're looking for tutorials on scientific medical animations this is a good site;

http://www.molecularmovies.com

I haven't come across much info online for these things, but based on the reels I've seen from medical animators they seem to do both things on a molecular level and things like surgical and forensic reconstructions a lot of the time, so if you drop them an e-mail at molecularmovies they might be able to point you in the right direction.
