MedPix® free online medical image database

medpixMedPix® is a free online medical image database from the National Library of Medicine. The MedPix collection categorizes and classifies the image and patient data for each of several subsets of image database applications (e.g. radiology, pathology, ophthalmology, etc.). The content material is both high-quality and high-yield and includes both common and rare conditions. Most cases have a proven diagnosis (pathology, clinical follow-up). The teaching file cases are peer-reviewed by an Editorial Panel. Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Nurse Education (CNE) are available. The material is organized by disease category, disease location (organ system), and by patient profiles. Over the past 16 years, MedPix has amassed an impressive collection of over 53,000 images from over 13,000 cases.

Looking for more images? Bio-Image Search is a tool from Stanford’s Lane Medical Library. Bio-Image Search enables discovery of biomedical images you can use, aggregates biomedical images from many image sources, and displays results in four groups, from broadest reuse rights to most limited reuse rights.

Depending on your use, there are also other medical images you can use. Are you preparing a teaching presentation and want to include medical images from VisualDx in it? Follow these guidelines for use of VisualDx images in educational and non-commercial settings.
