Choosing the Right Healthcare Image

Healthcare images display subject matter that remind the viewer of all things medical. Examples include a photo of a nurse helping a patient out of bed or a doctor listening to the heartbeat of a child, as well as graphics of medical equipment, recognizable medical icons, and medical professionals. With Shutterstock’s vast library of medical imagery, searching for and finding the perfect healthcare image has never been easier. Simply type “doctor office,” “healthcare professional,” or any other medical keywords and begin exploring the myriad image results. When selecting healthcare imagery for your project, it helps to imagine yourself in the position of your viewer. Does the image inspire a sense of hope? Photos that include sunlight and the smiling faces of both medical professionals and patients can help put your viewers at ease. Alternatively, you are looking for medical imagery to use as the background of a slideshow, try using a graphic that is not overly busy. You want the image to fit the medical context without distracting viewers from your message. A slightly transparent medical symbol can work well in such projects.

Using medical images for website

  • High-resolution medical images are essential when it comes to attracting new patients or clients to your medical website. If you are looking to revamp an existing medical website with contemporary, of-the-moment imagery, try searching for photos that include masked medical professionals, hand sanitizer, or a doctor and patient engaged in a telehealth session.
  • Preparing to launch the site of a new business that offers medical services? Let visitors know what you are all about by including crisp, visually engaging medical imagery. An artistic human anatomy graphic such as Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man can let people know your business cares about helping individuals to discover and follow a well-balanced lifestyle.
  • If your website offers medical insurance, include a graphic of a medical shield in front of a clipboard, as this is recognizable as the medical insurance symbol.
