MedLine Plus has been bringing helpful medical and health information to the web-browsing public for over a decade, and they have always been committed to providing information for educators as well. As one of their more specialized sections, the mammography site contains information on how to perform mammograms, including several interactive tutorials. First-time visitors will want look at the “Contents of this page” area, which allows them to move directly to sections such as “Clinical Trials”, “Research”, “Pictures/Diagrams”, and “Overviews”. One nice touch is that the site draws on materials culled from a number of high-quality sources, including the National Cancer Institute, the National Women’s Health Information Center, and the American Cancer Society. Two other resources here that are worth special mention are the Atlas of the Body (provided by the American Medical Association) and the multilingual mammogram tutorials offered in Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
