Textbook Images

In late 2009 I was hired by the book company Lippincott Williams & Wilkins to be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) on a new Anatomy and Positioning Textbook they were creating to compete with Merrill’s and Bontrager. During the following year I spent hundreds of hours going through the PACS at CHOMP looking for textbook quality images that would be included in the textbook. I viewed tens of thousands of images and painstakingly chose hundreds of them.

In December of 2010 the project was cancelled (it was turning out to be a whole lot more difficult for their writers than they thought it would be). I still had all of the images so I began using them during my weekly student image critique sessions. I also gave them to a couple of radiography programs that wanted different high quality digital radiographs.

Below are all of the images I had chosen. They can easily be found in the appropriate body part folder. Feel free to download as many of them as you would like.

I am slowly cutting and pasting these images into this section. I have over 300 of them and they need to be done one at a time with quite a few changes to each so that they fit properly and have the correct tagline with them.
