PathoPic is a Public access image database providing images of high quality for
use in medical education and public health information. Each image has an unique identification number and is classified according to its topography, diagnosis,
stain, etc. Additional information is supplied in terms of a short description
and clinical data if available. A detailed search form allows locating images
precisely and fast. The search result can be viewed as text or in a preview format
with thumbnails. For students an interactive training mode has been developed,
which can be adapted to individual needs (in german version only). Based on an
easy to use technology PathoPic will be a fast growing image database with the
possibility to integrate any image of the database in different learning modules.
