  • Medical dictionary
  • Weird in several respects
What, you may reasonably ask, is a Medical WebEnd? I wish I could tell you, but I can’t. If you type in the URL above, you’ll encounter a search engine with a banner description that says “Medical Terminology Dictionary.” Entering a term in the search box brings up a Google-based search of the site that produces hyperlinks to definitions, images, and other content. Another curiosity at the site is that a link at the top of every search result says something like “See 14,000 images for (Search Item),” but each time I clicked it, the result was “Your search did not match any documents.” So, the bottom line here is that if you want to search the 20,000 item medical dictionary at the site, you’ll be quite content with what you find. You’ll probably be disappointed in not learning what a Medical WebEnd is and probably be even more disappointed at the lack of images returned.
