Image database compilation by, Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries
Have you ever googled for any medical image – for any disease, illustration or figure? You may know that Google Images is a more specific resource. What we often are not aware is that images we find, may be subject to copyright, and we can not use them without permission and/or payment. Well, there are various databases which are specially compiled to provide access to images. Importantly, they also have details of images that they provide.
The Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries made an effort to bring together such databases which are free for access. Do check out the ‘Finding, Downloading, and Managing Medical Images’ section of Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries which takes you to Ten image databases which are freely available online for fair use. Among these six databases are especially dedicated to medical images. The range of resources each database varies from still images to moving pictures and some images date back to the 1500s.
