Radiologic Science: Databases

This guide was developed by the Health Sciences Library in collaboration with the Division of Radiologic Science

Databases for Radiologic Science Students

Why use multiple databases?

Different databases focus on different areas of the literature.  This is especially significant in Radiologic Science, as in other Allied Health Sciences. So, for instance, although there is substantial overlap in PubMed and EMBASE, you may find better coverage of the North American literature in PubMed and better coverage of European and non-North American literature in EMBASE.
