The Gastrointestinal Video Atlas

  • Videos load quickly, diverse cases represented
  • Cumbersome page layout

A warning: I would not recommend surfing this website while you’re eating dinner. The Gastrointestinal Video Atlas provides—in graphic detail—exactly what the title suggests: videos of the gastrointestinal system. Well, videos of a diseased gastrointestinal system, that is. Composed of endoscopic videos, the atlas documents a wide variety of medical ailments, including an esophageal papilloma, gastric cancer, colon carcinoma, and Crohn disease. A product of El Salvador, the atlas website is presented in both English and Spanish. The videos themselves don’t take too long to load; however, the formatting of the website is a bit cumbersome. Under each heading (such as celiac disease) all of the videos are embedded on the same page, resulting in a long, scrolling page that itself takes some time to load. That annoyance aside, this is a good video resource for medical professionals.
