PubMed Enhanced with Images

Citations in PubMed now include images from the new NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) Images database. The database has more than 2.5 million images and figures from medical and life sciences journals. Images is expected to have a wide range of uses for a variety of user groups. These include the clinician looking for the visual representation of a disease or condition, the researcher searching for studies with certain types of analysis, the student seeking diagrams that elucidate complex processes such as DNA replication, the professional or educator looking for an image for a presentation, and the patient wanting to better understand his disease. Currently the only the images from PubMed Central are available.

The images display in the PubMed Abstract view as a strip of thumbnails.  Mousing over the image will show a preview image.
