Atlas of Dermatology Information

Loyola University Medical Center

  • The material presented in the Atlas of Dermatology is best viewed on a frames compliant browser, which means Netscape 2.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer and higher. The AOL browser works well also. A non-frames version of this site is now available. We believe the frames interface is best for rapidly viewing many images.

  • Please be aware that you can move the frame sizes with your mouse, and can go back in a frame with the right click mouse button; this is not always intuitive. The atlas was designed on a 17 inch monitor with a 1024 x 768 setting. Those of you with a 15 inch monitor, or a monitor or television incapable of these higher setting are not completely left out, and we realize that the frames interface may be hard to handle. A non-frames version of this site is now available--you may lose some navigability, but gain the ability to successfully view the whole page without scrolling or changing the frame size.

  • A larger resolution monitor setting is best because some images can be quite large. We try to keep our images are under 50K in size, however, some exceptions have been made, to keep the important high quality. (Especially when it comes to photomicrographs--photos that were taken through a microscope.) These images usually don't compress to jpeg format as well, due to the complexity of these images.

  • Currently, this dermatology imagebase is sorted alphabetically by disease. We realize that this imagebase is not suitable for all languages, and coding schemes.

  • Therefore, if you have any suggestions for coding systems or languages you would like to see installed and in the future, please e-mail me,
    Jason R. Swanson

  • I will do my best to make all suggestions possible. Our goal is to provide a tremendous resource that will be of aid to everyone.
    Thank You
