ARRS GoldMiner® home page

ARRS GoldMiner® Global finds radiology images from leading peer-reviewed, English-language radiology journals using non-English search terms.

How It Works

ARRS GoldMiner® Global translates your search terms into English using the Microsoft® Translator web service. We then use the English-language term to query our database of images.

You can select one of our eight language communities, or simply enter your search term. The translator recognizes more than 35 of the world's most common languages; if it knows your language, it will translate your search query and return images for you.

Using ARRS GoldMiner® Global

Enter one or more words that describe a disease, imaging finding, or anatomic feature. It is best to keep your search short and simple.

You can filter the search results by imaging modality (e.g., "PET"), age group, and/or sex — just click on the pull-down menus in the grey bar at the top of the search results page. The selections will indicate the number of images for each selection.

Click on the small "thumbnail" image to open a full-size image on the original journal's web site. You can link to the full text of the article as well — just click on the article's name.
