Visual Medical Dictionary

I’ve recently come across an interesting medical search engine, the Visual Medical Dictionary. Why is it unique? Let’s see an example. I typed diabetes, then I had to choose from this list:


I thought I should take a look at Type 2, then I got a description of the disease and this image/graph:


So this CureHunter search engine goes beyond regular dictionaries by displaying an ontology context tree (MeSH based) and interactive network graph of related drugs, diseases and therapies. For example: a search for “obesity” will show a strong relationship with “Insulin” and “Exercise” among other drugs and therapies.

CureHunter can read the entire US National Library of Medicine Medline Archive. What do they provide?

  • For patients: PDF Reports with all drug evidence for all known cures or symptom improvement.
  • For medical professionals: decision support in 10-20 seconds of real clinical time.
  • For pharma research scientists: over 1.5 million specific clinical outcome data points to new drug discovery software.

  1. Unquestionably believe that that you saettd. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as folks think about issues that they plainly don’t realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
