The Illustrated Doctors’ Dictionary
Illustrated Doctors Dictionary image from New Medical Terms
What started off as a small compilation of pathology jargon (nutmeg liver, cobblestoning, Orphan Annie eyes), later expanded to encompass imaging (mogul sign), molecular biology (Northern blot), informatics (computer rage), forensic psychiatry (Ted Bundy), environment (Chernobyl), global village (Médecins sans Frontières), imaging (Starry sign), military medicine (Budd light), genocide (Rape of Nanjing), and the paranormal (miraculous cures).
This eBook is shamelessly intended to provide hours of medical “edutainment” for med students, physicians and other advanced health professionals during lulls in the onslaught of patients and barrage of paperwork. Stick it on your iPad or Nook
I pulled it from the Kindle store because of pricing issues.
The Doctors’ Dictionary has over 10,000 definitions of syndromes, people and events that impact directly and indirectly on medical practice. Short shrift is accorded terms that are well-covered in other medical dictionaries, freeing space for things like serial killers, the arts, entertainment and so much more. You won’t be disappointed.
