About ID Images

The goal of this site is to present images of interesting and instructive Infectious Disease cases to healthcare trainees and professionals for educational purposes. The images presented have been contributed by faculty and fellows, and the viewer is advised that some of the images are of a graphic and sensitive nature and are not intended for a general audience.

ID Images has been developed with support from the National Library of Medicine (eMicrobes: A Digital Library for Learning Infectious Diseases, G08LM008830s). The site is a result of a collaboration among the Infectious Diseases Divisions of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard. Images and cases are provided by the hospitals' faculty and staff and by other contributing authors, including infectious diseases fellows who submitted cases to the Infectious Diseases Society of America annual meeting. Cases and images within ID images are described using terms from the NLM's Medical Subject Headings (MeSH, 2010 version). Using MeSH facilitates internal linking and allows integration with the Harvard Catalyst Semantic Search tool.

Healthcare professionals are advised to seek other sources of medical information in addition to this site when making individual patient care decisions, as this site is unable to provide information which can fully address the medical issues of all individuals. Basic sign-in information is requested regarding medical affiliation and is required, but this information will not be released or utilized for marketing purposes.
