Radiology Image Library and Search Engine
ARRS GoldMiner® provides rapid search of a very large, Internet-based library of peer-reviewed radiology images.
ARRS GoldMiner® provides instant access to images published in selected peer-reviewed radiology journals. This web-based system allows viewers to search for images by findings, anatomy, imaging technique, and patient age and sex.
Unlike most internet search engines, ARRS GoldMiner® understands medical vocabulary. It uses sophisticated techniques from the U.S. National Library of Medicine (part of NIH) to discover medical concepts in free-text figure captions, and uses that information to quickly retrieve relevant images. GoldMiner® incorporates standardized vocabularies, such as the Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms, which are used to index the medical literature in MEDLINE and PubMed.
GoldMiner® is provided as a free, open-access service by the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) at http://goldminer.arrs.org.
