PubMed A basic search in PubMed will look at all image captions in the database and retrieve images related to your topic. For example, a search on “liver cancer therapy” retrieves the usual list of summary citations, and a maximum of four thumbnails of the most relevant images that appear on the top right side of the results page. Mouse over the image to see relevant details or click on it to go to the image and its companion article. You may also click on "See More" to see all the images matching your search.
StatRef is an electronic resource for healthcare professionals. The Library subscribes to a StatRef collection of medical resources and to a collection of Dental resources. The advance search interface allows you to search the databases for images which you can utilize for teaching purposes.
