Become a Member: Reasons to Download Medical Images

Medical professionals—including professors, attending physicians, trainees, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants and pharmacists—all need high-quality images for their formal presentations and lectures.

Despite the high need, it’s never been easy to find such images. A search for a few specific visuals may take visiting several medical or professional websites, requiring multiple log-ins and sometimes cumbersome download processes. Even when medical professionals finally locate the materials they need, it takes a second round of vetting to make sure the images and their descriptions are accurate and are not under a restricted use copyright.
