On-Line Retrieval of Clinical Slides.
Milgrom, Linda
The Physical Diagnosis Slide Bank, a collaborative project of the Universities of Washington, California at San Diego, and Arizona, utilizes an online interactive computer program to access a collection of over 2000 teaching clinical slides. Searchable data elements for each slide in the bank include subject descriptors (MeSH); accession number; contributing physician; date of entry; and slide type, e.g., x-ray, histopathological. The most common search approach is by subject with each slide being assigned at least three descriptors, one each for physical finding, anatomical part, and etiology. Many users interact directly with the system, previewing and selecting available slides for use and duplication. If they are not familiar with MeSH, user instruction is available. Sample Slide Bank data entry forms, a patient consent form, and several forms used in coordination with user slide selection are appended. (Author/MBR)
