ARRS Partners With BioMed Central To Add More Than 4,000 More Images To GoldMiner(TM)
BioMed Central, a free database of peer-reviewed scientific articles has contributed over 170 journals, adding over 4,200 images to the GoldMiner™ collection raising the collection to over 170,000 images and over 225 journals.
'BioMed Central is very happy to be partnering with the ARRS to expand their radiology image search tool with the indexing of thousands of openly licensed images from our journals," said Matthew Cockerill, publisher of BioMed Central. "We are always keen to encourage creative use of the open access articles which we publish and GoldMiner™ is a great example of this," he said.
"GoldMiner™ speeds your search for radiology images by quickly matching search criteria with peer-reviewed content available on the Web," said Charles E. Kahn, Jr., MD, a creator of GoldMiner™. "By limiting results to images from respected, peer-reviewed journals, you won't spend a lot of time sifting through thousands of unrelated images or images from unknown sources. You can save more time by filtering by imaging modality, patient age and gender," said Dr. Kahn.
The GoldMiner™ search engine is designed by and for radiologists. It understands medical vocabulary, and uses sophisticated tools from the National Library of Medicine to recognize synonyms and abbreviations of radiological terms.

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) was founded in 1900 and is the oldest radiology society in the United States. Its monthly journal, the American Journal of Roentgenology, began publication in 1906. Radiologists from all over the world attend the ARRS Annual Meeting to take part in instructional courses, scientific paper presentations, symposia, new issues forums and scientific and commercial exhibits related to the field of radiology. The Society is named after the first Nobel Laureate in Physics, Wilhelm Röentgen, who discovered the X-ray in 1895.
