This is the relevant section taken from the Audio-Visual section of the university's referencing guide. 

Medical images (including anonymous patient scans)


TTaylor, T. (2012) Respiratory System. Available at: [Accessed 30 July 2014].

HHowtoMedia Inc. (2013) Pronator Teres Muscle. Available at: [Accessed 30 July 2014].


Examples of images from subscription atlases such as Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy:

AAcland, R. (2003) Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy. Vol. 1.3.3. Bones and joints of the fingers.Available through: [Accessed 31 July 2015].


If you need to reference an individual patient's scan, the advice from the Department of Radiography is that you will need to anonymize the image to protect the individual but you will also need to protect the Trust as well. Each image should be regarded as a publication in its own right.
