Nuclear Medicine Technology: Images & videos

Starting point for research into Nuclear Medicine Technology


There are two databases with images you can download to use in your assignments and presentations.

Britannica Image Quest has images of professionals performing scans and scan images. This is a good place to find stock photos of patient interactions and equipment. There are a ton of images!

Example from Britannica Image Quest:

Britannica Kidney Scan

Stedman's Online: Select the Illustrations tab and Nuclear Medicine to find some images (fewer than Britannica). There are also some useful anatomy colour plates.

But what if I found the perfect image in Google?

You need to go into Search Tools and only use ones that are "Labelled for reuse" (either with or without modifications - i.e. are you adding or removing something from the original picture?). Since it is coursework, it counts as noncommerical use.

You still need to give the original creator credit for their work by using a citation.

  • Many images on the web do not have easily identifiable author, title, or date information. Try to locate missing information by right-clicking on the image and viewing the properties and/or looking for information within the page on which the image is found.  If you cannot find any of this information, begin the citation with a description of the work within brackets.

What about YouTube?

Nope, YouTube doesn't own the videos either!

You would need to contact the original creator of the video to ask for permission before using it. 

To save you time and effort, use the Library's video databases when possible. These videos have been cleared for class use.

Films on Demand

The Library's subscription to Films On Demand is a great source of videos on many topics. Search using the drop-down subjects menu or do a keyword search. All videos are broken up into segments, so they're great for showing during presentations!
