Citations in PubMed now include images from the new NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) Images database . The database contains more than 2.5 million images and figures from medical and life sciences journals. Currently only images from articles included in PubMed Central are available.
The images display as a strip of thumbnails in the PubMed Abstract. Mousing over an image will generate a preview display of the image and its caption. The image strip will also include a See all images link as well as a Free text link directly to the figure’s page in the PubMed Central article. Right and left arrows on each end of the strip allow the user to scroll through the images.
