Q: Where can I get the Chest X-ray images in Open-i ?
A: The chest x-ray images from the Indiana University hospital network are available here:
Q: I have heard about the Tuberculosis collection. Where can I get those images ?
A: The Communications Engineering Branch at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, an intramural division of the National Library of Medicine has the following de-identified image data sets of chest x-rays (CXRs) available to the research community. Both sets contain normal as well as abnormal x-rays, with the latter containing manifestations of tuberculosis. We request not to share these datasets outside of your research group/organization, but forward interested researchers / new requests to us. Also, please inform us if you find errors or inconsistencies in the data. Finally, we ask that publications resulting from the use of this data attribute the data to National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA, and cite this article: https://lhncbc.nlm.nih.gov/publication/pub9356
Q: How do I use an image as query?
A: There are two ways to search using images:
Q: What is the difference between the Citation List view and Image Grid?
A: The citation list view shows the best match image on the left along with citation information on the right. The grid view displays all matching images from an article. You may switch between views by clicking on the appropriate icon next to “View as” area to the right of the search box.
Q: How do I rank my results by date?
A: Open the Rank By section in the “Limits” bar. Click on Newest or Oldest. This only gives more weight to the date; it does not sort by date.
Q: How do I use limits?
A: By default, the “exclude graphics” limit is applied to the search, which excludes charts, graphs, drawings, etc. All subsets and specialties are searched. Text is searched in all fields. Results are ranked in relevance order. To filter the results, you may select one or more categories in the “Limits” bar. To view or remove selected filters, use the “Selected Limits” area above the “limits” bar.
Q: How do I open “View Article” results in a new window?
A: Control-Click on the link to open and view the article in a new browser window.
Q: How do I open “View Similar Images In” results in a new window?
A: Control-Click on the link to open and view the results in a new browser window.
Q: When my browser window is narrow I lose the View Similar Images and View Article links in list view?
A: When the window is narrow, Open-i responsive design puts the user in mobile mode. Click, tap, or swipe the three vertical dots to view those links.
Q: In Chrome, my video doesn't play somtimes, what do I do?
A: We have a known issue for some videos in Chrome. Please do a Ctrl-Shift-R to refresh the page and the video will play.
Q: Can I do an exact search? I am looking for AID and don't want to see papers about HIV/AIDS.
A: By default, the search terms are expanded with UMLS synonymy and the singular/plural forms, so aid is expanded to HIV/AIDS.
To avoid expansion, use NO_EXPAND (all upper case) + search term, e.g., NO_EXPAND AID If you want singular/plural expansion, but not UMLS synonymy, use TERM_EXPAND + search terms. For example, NO_EXPAND heart attack finds 89 articles; TERM_EXPAND heart attack finds 118, and searching for heart attack with default setting results in 2805 articles.
