Images in the Medical Milestones web exhibit were selected based upon historical and/or visual interest. In some cases, damaged photographs, published copies, or photocopies have been digitized when other options were not available, or the original items no longer existed. These digitized items largely reflect the present condition of their physical counterparts. Scratches, dust, or other markings have not been digitally altered or corrected.
Where dimensions are noted, these are in centimeters. They indicate the entire surface of the physical item, such as a page from a scrapbook, or borders of a photograph. The digital dimensions may differ. In many cases, these extra areas are not visible in the images that are available in the web exhibit and repository.
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) are used for subject headings within the web exhibit and companion repository.
