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:

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.
