Clinical Images

Clinical images are the pictures that show the clinical findings of a particular case of the patient. The clinical pictures should include questions and answers that should educate or remind readers about an important clinical situation or event. The image should not just describe the picture; however, should be informative enough from a clinical teaching view.

Formatting Guidelines

The title should be less than five to eight words. The text describing a clinical question should be within 150 words. The images can be uploaded in .tiff, .jpg or .jpeg format. We recommend using high-quality images. Text should be in one double-spaced electronic document.

Patient consent form

If the image/figure of the patient is identifiable then the patient consent form is required. Incase, the eyes are masked then the form is not mandatory.
