Digital Laboratory Medicine Library

The Library contains a comprehensive collection of digitized medical images. The images have been identified and chosen by the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology, University of Toronto, for their value in contributing to the educational mission of the Department across all learning levels. Each image is accompanied by additional information designed to aid the learner in developing the skills necessary for interpretation.

Teachers and Learners of all levels are welcome to search the library and view the images:

Got the Re-cut Blues?

The DLM Library is very grateful for the participation of the LMP Postgraduate Trainees for providing many of the excellent cases that make up the collection. Many LMP trainees from our programs are regular contributors; identifying cases of interest from the broad spectrum of materials available at the DLM contributing sites.

All cases are reviewed and approved by the DLM Library oversight committee prior to publication.
