Finding Medical Images: Part I

Have you wondered where you can find high-quality medical images for use in your presentations, lectures, or even publications? This video shows you library-licensed, standalone medical image databases such as ImagesMD, general medical information resources with an image gallery component such as MDConsult and Access Medicine, medical journals that have an image index such as the New England Journal of Medicine, and finally professional organizations that provide an image resource, such as the American Society of Hematology’s Image Bank.


Finding Medical Images: Part II

This part of the tutorial demonstrates the image resources provided by health-related US government agencies, such as the CDC's Public Health Image Library (PHIL) and the National Cancer Institute's Visuals Online database. A lot of NIH institutes also provide their own image resources on their websites. We also show the History of Medicine Image Database from the National Library of Medicine. Finally, we show a number of medical image resources available here on the Yale campus, such as the Medical Library's digital library and the Yale Image Finder.
