"If the Nucleus medical images were free, I would use approximately 10 per year for class discussions and everyone would have a leaflet to look at and reflect on."
- Claire Buick
- School of Nursing and Midwifery, Dundee, UK
"Your images provide detailed pictures of many surgical procedures. If they were free, I would use 3-5 in a speech for class to represent a procedure."
- Amanda Edwards
- Gainesville College, Gainesville, GA
"If I had full access to the images on your web site, I would integrate your illustrations and animations into lectures given to medical students and residents. In particular, the animation of vaginal delivery on your website would be an excellent teaching tool, allowing students to visualize the birth process well."
- Jessica Bienstock, MD, MPH
- Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD
"The pictures are clear especially those concerned with skeletal anatomy. I would use 50 or more per year for presentations and educating patients."
- Karim Ghaiss
- Florida College of Integrative Medicine, Orlando, FL
"The images that I have seen are better than most sites. The animations are wonderful as well. I especially like the animations of the stages of labor. If the images were free, I would use 5-10 them for study or for educational PowerPoint presentations for school."
- Greg Gatchell
- Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Athens, OH
"I would use 10-50 per year for handouts, Powerpoint presentations and school assignments."
- Kim Knight
- Wellpark College, Aukland, New Zealand
"The Nucleus database contains a vast range of images that have great clarity - ideal for use at undergraduate level. They would form an ideal compliment to written work. If they were free, I would use 20 images per year in projects such as a current poster presentation on Hydrocephalus, previous case studies (including kidney conditions and cervical spine) and in anatomy and pathology essays."
- Christine Hood
- University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, UK
"I am a nursing student and am always in need of medical images suitable for public displays. If they were free, I would use between 20-30 images from the [SMART
Imagebase] per year."
- Jennifer Fosse
- University of Hawaii, Hilo, HI
"I am in the beginning stages of obtaining my nursing degree. I am researching skin grafts for a paper that is due in a week. I was told I needed a visual aid when I present my research information to the class. The medical art that your company displays are outstanding and would truly be appreciated by myself and the other students as well. I would presume if these images were free to libraries I would use approximately 12 per year to better understand my classes and the subject matter in which was being taught at the time. The images are excellent in detail and provide a more clear understanding of what is being taught and studied in class. The textbook descriptions from colleges arent nearly as detailed. I most definitely would recommend Nucleus Medical Art to others."
- Michelle Morrison, Student
- Front Range Community College, Longmont, CO
"I am an honor student, and have presented several of my papers on my school campus, in the community, and also at national conventions. In our program we are responsible for presenting several oral presentations in class and two major presentations for the campus community. If the Nucleus images were free, I would use approximately 10 of them to help my audience visualize a procedure, an illness or an injury. A picture is worth a thousand words, and in the health field, it is always better to have picture when you are lecturing. The quality of the images is better than some of the pictures in my text books. They really help to describe and explain what the procedure entails."
- Stephani Reazor
- Delaware State University, Dover, DE
"I am a senior at ODU
's School of Nursing and will carry on for my Masters in Nursing. I have a slide show presentation due tomorrow so this would be a great addition to it. Aside from Nucleus, there are no educational sites that have quality images on the net which are easy to use, download, and present. Nursing students are constantly trying to find innovative ways to produce presentations at home to present their patients or subject material."
- Abreail Tetzlaff
- Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA
"I am studying my course via correspondence, therefore I would use the [SMART
Imagebase] images to further my understanding of descriptions in my study books. I would also use them in my assignments to demonstrate how bones should appear & compare to bones with certain diseases, ie osteoporosis. One can learn much faster by using clear images to further understanding."
- Kimberley Butler
- Australian Institute of Applied Sciences, Brisbane, Australia
"The detail provided by these images and the way in which the images are clearly presented make them excellent for presentation purposes. These images also make it easy to break a potentially difficult subject down and make it more manageable. I would love to use about 50 of the images per year in poster presentations. Human anatomy/physiology often gets monotonous and boring, but when students have to undertake visual presentation projects and bring a particular topic alive it really stimulates the mind, makes the educational trip fun and more importantly we end up with a far greater depth of learning than we would have done just straight from the book. If we were asked to research more topics ourselves, with the help of your images we could display and present topics making them far more approachable and fun."
- Patrice Power
- University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, UK
"Images such as those on the Nucleus Medical Art web site are not readily available online or through other sources. If they were free to use, I would use about 10 each year in news stories televised on campus."
- Brad Driver
- University of Akron, Akron, OH
"The Nucleus medical images are very clear and beautiful. If they were free, I would use about 40 of them in my lectures to students."
- Moshe Shachar
- Wingate Institute, Netania, Israel
"Nucleus has excellent medical diagrams that allow certain techniques and pathologies to be easily understood by lay people. I would use 10-50 medical images per year for Power-point presentations for educational purposes only."
- Adam Brett
- Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, UK
"The Nucleus images are highly valuable in that they not only give you unique views of bones, arteries, veins, nerves and their relationships but also, very vividly, provide graphics with fractures or clinical complications that are common in the field. This is very valuable since most textbooks or atlases only show graphics of the body in perfect condition. If these images were free, I would use 15 per year in PowerPoint presentations for case studies presented in Gross Anatomy class, Physiology, Embroylogy, etc. for the Doctorate in Dentistry program and in Medical school."
- Jorge Rojas, Student
- Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, CA
"For our AP
and soft tissue classes we have to study bones and muscles and each student is required to make themselves muscle cards to study from which are also graded. I found it difficult to locate many individual muscles through traditional resources, so it would be so great to have a database of images to access to help us put our cards together. Good images are hard to find, and not everyone has the resources that some of us have available to them. If these images were free, I would use up to 120 per year for my classes."
- Lisa Cote
- Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, Newington, CT
"My thesis is on Occupational Asthma and general occupational respiratory disease and the graphics from Nucleus medical images provide an excellent visual complement to the subject. If the images were free, I would use approximately 20 per year for personal use."
- Jetta Elliott
- Arizona State University, Mesa, AZ
"The images on the [SMART
Imagebase] are so detailed and the information associated with them is the most updated that I have found on the web. If they were free, I would use about 10 of them per year for periodic class reports and research projects."
- Angela Vela
- Napa Valley College, Napa, CA
"Because the Nucleus medical images are very clear and useful, I would like to use them in the inside of a one-page patient-education tri-fold brochure I am making for a class."
- Jason Welch
- Anne Arundel Community College, Arnold, MD
"If the images on your web site were free, I would use 10-20 of them each year in research presentations at scientific conferences, and for classroom presentations to undergraduate and graduate students. Nucleus medical images provide excellent detail and show complex medical procedures that are often not documented anywhere else."
- Scott Davis, PhD
- Texas Health Resources, Arlington, TX
"If the Nucleus medical images were free, I would use 2-5 per year for assigned presentations or projects presented to peers in a classroom setting. Diagrams, photographs, and other visuals always enhance a presentation and promote better understanding of the topic, disorder, or information being given."
- Kathleen Burns
- Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ
"We trawled the Internet for appropriate images and yours were probably the best we found, as a group, due to their incredibly high quality and clarity for our allocated topic of Hydrocephalus. We are a group of students doing a degree course in Diagnostic Radiography. We are in our 2nd year of study, approaching the end of 2nd year and then sitting our exams! in May 2005. For the Pathology module, we have been given the subject of Hydrocephalus and we have to produce a poster which will be on 2005."
- Sally-Anne Barker-Drake
- University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, UK
"If the Nucleus images were free, I would use approximately 50 per year of them to greatly enhance the myriad projects given to me by my advanced-placement level biology courses. An example of such projects include anatomical descriptions, explanations of the pathological processes of certain organs, and other things of this nature."
- J.C. Story
- William T. Dwyer HS, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
"If the Nucleus medical images were free, I would use them as visual aids, and diagrams for our Health Class. Currently I would use a medical image for a project on Salmonella. This is the first time I have ever used Nucleus Medical Images, and I believe it is perfect for my current project, because of the clarity of the diagrams."
- Dillon Jourde
- Cistercian Preparatory School, Irving, TX
"In one short month I will be a high school biology teacher. If the Nucleus medical images were free, I would use about 50 per year as visuals in my class. Students learn science better when they are able to visualize the processes."
