Gold Standard Multimedia's
The Integrated Medical Curriculum
The Integrated Medical Curriculum (IMC) is a world-class website offering major
courses taught in medical school. The IMC was developed from Gold Standard
Multimedia's core collection of medical education CD-ROM products, which were
converted into an easy-to-use online format and enhanced with powerful search
features. The IMC is loaded with in-depth text coverage, lively animations,
streaming audio and video, realistic photos and illustrations, interactive
quizzes, quality content and much more!
The IMC is especially applicable to the first two years of medical school, as
GSM's broad offering of titles covers a majority of subjects studied during
those years. But the programs contained in the IMC also reach beyond the first
two years of study and are used by third and fourth year medical students,
interns, residents and practicing physicians. Other medical fields, such as
dentistry, optometry, podiatry, physical therapy, physician assistant, pharmacy,
nursing, chiropractic and sports medicine programs, as well as pre-med and other
undergraduate programs, will also find IMC's comprehensive content to be of
great value. GSM's programs are currently used by over 95% of U.S. medical
and pharmacy schools, more than 1,000 hospitals, and tens-of-thousands of
healthcare professionals worldwide.
A world-class drug information database from our Clinical Pharmacology product
that covers all preparations available in the US, including several unique
content areas such as investigational drugs, nutritional products, color
photographs, chemical structures, and patient counseling information. This
information is written specifically for the electronic environment, creating
many unique possibilities. We would be pleased to partner with companies viewing
this content as "in line" with strategic plans.

VISIBLE HUMAN MALE SEGMENTED AND CLASSIFIED DATASET
More than 3.3 billion voxels from the National Library of Medicine's Visible
Human Male dataset have been "segmented and classified" by the original creators
of the data to provide the most detailed anatomic database available anywhere!
While the original Visible Human Male dataset has been lauded for its unmatched
anatomical detail, it only contains information about the color of the human
body at every point in space. The Segmented and Classified dataset adds the
identity of the anatomical structure present at every point. Now, individual
structures and systems can be extracted from the original dataset in any
combination and examined in three dimensions. The data can be licensed for use
in a wide variety of commercial and research applications, including
visualization, physical modeling, simulation, and quantitative studies.
1,878 "slices" with resolution 1760 x 1024 and bit depth of 16 (since the number
of structures exceeds 256)
Voxel size: 0.33 x 1.0 mm
Full resolution storage: 1760 x 1024 x 1878 x 2 bytes = 6.77 GB
Data is highly compressible for compact storage
Files contain integer values corresponding to an index of over 1,400 anatomical
Index file for each structure contains the anatomical name, body region,
physiological system, and boundaries in each dimension (ROI parameters)
Can be provided as "volumetric models" corresponding to individual anatomical
Platform independent data structure

In recent years latex allergy has become a serious problem for workers who come in contact with latex products
in their daily environment and for certain predisposed patients. This newly recognized allergy has been called
an "epidemic" by many in the
medical field. For every individual who knows of the allergy, many more are unaware. This is causing more
people to become unnecessarily sensitized. Additionally, latex allergic patients require special medical
precautions for safe treatment.
We want everyone to be "in the know". We offer the following services to assist you:

The only scientifically validated system
for teaching physical examination of the breast.
For years people believed that it was possible to learn the skill of breast examination by reading
pamphlets or watching videos. If tactile skills could be acquired by visual or auditory means, then
one could become a pianist by reading instructions or watching others perform. Because breast
examination is also a tactile skill, it requires special training of the sense of touch.
The Mammacare Method of Breast Examination is highly effective because MammaCare’s tactually accurate breast models teach fingers what to feel for.
Our fingers must learn the feel of normal, nodular breast texture and of any changes such as lumps or
tissue thickening that might require attention. MammaCare accomplishes this with the aid of a model
that is so lifelike it has been used to calibrate mammography machines! After receiving MammaCare
training and practicing your tactile skills on the MammaCare breast model, you will be able to
perform a thorough and proficient breast examination. Unless you have been trained with this model
and had the opportunity to practice on it, you have not learned MammaCare and you will not be as
skilled as you could be.
A patented breast model
that teaches your fingers to feel the difference
between normal nodularity (the natural
lumpiness that every woman has) and
potentially harmful changes.
A 45-minute video tape
that teaches the skill of breast self-examination
through a series of carefully designed
exercises, first with the
model and then on your
own tissue. The tape is divided into convenient
sections so you can proceed at your own pace
and review certain
portions as often as you
The videotape is available
in English, Japanese,
Chinese, and Spanish.
