University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Online Case Database
The Department of Pathology at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine has formatted many cases for online viewing. The case database is growing constantly, with several members of the University of Pittsburgh's School of Medicine contributing cases on a regular basis.

CHORUS (Collaborative Hypertext of Radiology)
CHORUS is a "quick reference" hypertext for physicians and medical students. More than 1,100 documents describe different diseases, radiological findings, differential-diagnosis lists ("gamuts"), and pertinent anatomy, pathology, and physiology. These are arranged by organ system and are interconnected by hypertext links. Documents are very brief and generally do not contain images. The documents may also be retrieved by title search. New contributors are welcomed as either authors or reviewers. The site is provided by the Medical College of Wisconsin USA.

Index to Pathology Documents
A collection of short documents on various diseases from the archives of the Central Middlesex Hospital Trust. Each document contains images and a brief description.

Urbana Atlas of Pathology
The Urbana Atlas of Pathology is a collection of visual images (collected by Donald R. Thursh M.D and Dr. Patricia J. Morchoe M.D.) provided by the University of Illinois College of Medicine. All images are accompanied by a legend. There are 6 volumes: Overview of General Pathology, Cardiovascular Pathology, Endocrine Pathology, Pulmonary Pathology, Renal Pathology, and selected normal images. Volumes 3-6 are frames based. This resource is aimed at medical students.

Radiology Case Museum
This Radiology Museum is a database of radiological pathology cases, coded using the Americal College of Radiology ACR classification. For each case, an image is shown, with information on the clinical presentation, features in the image, diagnosis and differentiation.
