Although all of our products are excellent resources, images.MD is becoming extremely popular with our customers.  It is an indispensable tool for physicians and students in the health disciplines. I hope that you find it useful for your institution.

images.MD, the online encyclopedia of medical images, compiles more than 55,000 images from more than 90 collections ranging from allergy to urology, each accompanied by detailed and informative text contributed by more than 2,000 medical experts.

Medical school, college, and university professors, as well as students, now have a comprehensive reference source providing a valuable aid for teaching, project assignments, and essays on many topics.
Librarians find it easier to meet patrons' needs for medical image sourcing, self-learning initiatives, and continuing education courses.
Physicians find images.MD indispensable for preparing lecture notes and presentations. Personalization can help create that specific presentation for any lecture, class, or discussion group.
