Br Med J illustrations available as PowerPoint slides

The British Medical Journal has introduced several new features this week.

The one I like best allows readers to turn illustrations from BMJ articles into PowerPoint slides. It works for illustrations such as graphs and figures but not for tables.

After finding the desired illustration, select "View larger version" [in this window] or [in a new window], and then click on "PowerPoint Slide for Teaching."

Give the resulting Powerpoint slide a descriptive name and save it to your desktop or appropriate folder.

Try it out with any of the figures in this article:
Serious hazards of transfusion (SHOT) initiative: analysis of the first two annual reports. Br Med J 1999 Jul 3;319:16-9.
